    Reading this short piece causes you to read yourself It examines your own preconceived notions, and it leaves you questioning race and class This is worth a revisit.

    Do you know what s frustrating This is Toni Morrison s only published short story, and it s as powerful as a short story could be There are some really well developed themes, and language as powerful as Morrison has yielded it anywhere else If she only wrote short stories, in fact, Toni Morrison would probably still be one of the greatest authors America has ever produced She writes paragraphs like They have lived in Newburgh all of their lives and talk about it the way people do who have always known a home His grandmother is a porch swing older than his father and when they talk about streets and avenues and buildings they call them names they no longer have They still call the A P Rico s because it stands on property once a mom and pop store owned by Mr Rico And they call the new community college Town Hall because it once was My mother in law puts up jelly and cucumbers and buys butter wrapped in cloth from a dairy James and his father talk about fishing and baseball and I can see them all together on the Hudson in a raggedy skiff Half the population of Newburgh is on welfare now, but to my husband s family it was still some upstate paradise of a time long past A time of ice houses and vegetable wagons, coal furnaces and children weeding gardens When our son was born my mother in law gave me the crib blanket that had been hers.and can t you just imagine the people she talks about there So stuck in their ways, oblivious to the world around them that they don t realize how little things have stayed the same.The story focuses on two lifelong friends who sometimes don t get along so well, Twyla and Roberta Morrison reveals that one is white and one is black, yet never says which girl is which race As the story unfolds, major life events like marriage, career life and motherhood are set in contrast to the integration of the schools, childhood trauma and even Jimmy Hendrix concerts Prejudices are confronted in ways that only the ambiguity of the story allows, each girl possesses some stereotypical white and some stereotypical black traits so that common humanity becomes the focus, rather than what divides them It s really touching, but not in a sentimental way, rather in a way that rings with truth.

    No s el motivo por el cual olvid marcar que le este cuento, porque realmente me gust Tal vez sea porque lo internalic o porque lo releer a sin problemas En todo caso, esta historia de dos mujeres Twyla y Roberta que son de distintas razas no me gusta la palabra y se encuentran y se desencuentran me pareci tan lindo como tremendo Al principio las protagonistas est n juntas, despu s toman rumbos diferentes y se van cruzando en etapas de la vida Te deja reflexionando un buen rato y tratando de unir las versiones distintas de los hechos que tienen a otra mujer como centro Eso, precisamente, es lo que las re ne, por m s que las situaciones de ambas hayan cambiado Creo que para el lector que todav a no empez con Toni Morrison, este un buen lugar para hacerlo Y, si ya lo hizo yo empec con A Mercy y no lo supe apreciar , esta historia seguramente le va a encantar.

    Read here short piece on race in America.The ambiguity of thought, action, and character highlight issues that exist within the United States in one way or another It s a beautiful work that is easy to access, though, I do use a word of caution for potentially less adept readers, it s intentionally confusing vague in its definitions of what racial backgrounds the two central characters come from.I wish I could state this better, but this is a good, quick story that had much to say Why 5 I am on an oddly euphoric literary high read something that was convoluted and crappy, then I read this and may not be as objective as I should be I will say it doesn t deserve less than 4, however.

    THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS What I find the most interesting detail of Toni Morrison s Recitatif is that the reader is not told which girl is white and which one is black In a story about the nature of preconceived ideas and their consequences, this plays a role in making the reader feel like the two protagonists Roberta speaks about Maggie, I really did think she was black I didn t make that up I really thought so But now I can t be sure HAAL 2407 The reader might feel the same way about Roberta and Twyla, being compelled to examine any potential preconceived notion involving both race and class Twyla says, But I was puzzled by Roberta telling me Maggie was black She wasn t pitch black, I knew, or I would have remembered that 2406 Earlier in the story, Twyla describes Maggie as being sandy colored neither one or another color as well 2397 Even so, there is a possibility that Maggie s sandy colored skin was indeed black, but not perceived as such by Twyla at that time.

    This short story confuses you in a very good way It is really well written

    When I lived in Missouri, I often saw blacks with blacks, whites with whites at campus Two groups didn t mingle with each other as if there were always an electrostatic barrier between them, and nobody dared to touch it This silent, invisible wall puzzled me, because they were all Americans to me, all the same race to the foreign eye from an Asian country.The story has two female characters, Twyla and Roberta One is white, and the other is black, though the author doesn t clarify which is which The two aren t sure if Maggie was black or not, and their memories of the past, tinted with different ideas about race, also differ from each other.Like they do, we might be looking at things through colored glasses and conjuring up differences all the time Racial distinction is not made by physical characteristics, but by our imagination, by our consciousness of race.

  8. says:

    Participatory reading naked and solidified by Morrison s writing mastery A plot paralleling the civic rights movement peeps into the lives of two women protagonists for five times and always catches them in a racially insecure situation, while not providing even a single clue which of these women is black and which is white Omitting this information leaves a reader with some serious thinking about the motives and actions taken by each side meaning those two girls and probably also about racial stereotypes and prejudices both cunningly hidden behind the lines and cunningly revived from the reader s mind.In the end a scent of literary experiment rather remains over some well thought out and delivered message, but the story definitely deserves a readworthy status.

  9. says:

    The writing in this short story is brilliant Toni Morrison uses her words with exquisite care every word that is included in this story has to be there for anything to make sense Her ability to create two characters who are made up of stereotypes of both black and white cultures and keep the reader from knowing which character is black and which is white astounds me I feel like I have been looking for this short story for a long time without knowing I was looking for it Recitatif is only 20 pages, at least in my version, but it carries a powerful message with its few and selectively chosen words.
