A Mercy by Toni Morrison


Chicago scholars and writers Deborah Holton, Haki Madhubuti, Francesca Royster, Philip Royster and Ann Stanford explore Toni Morrison’s distinctive voice from the perspectives of performance, poetry, and pedagogy. As a novel that features stream-of-consciousness narratives and writing that revels in its lyricism as well as its narrative arc, A Mercy provides an extraordinary opportunity to explore the dynamics of identity, literacy, and art both on the page and on the stage.
