The Bluest Eye is the story of eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove, a black girl in an America whose love for its blonde, blue-eyed children can devastate all others, who prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different.

Very character-driven and poetic, but it lost me on a few parts. ( )

“Please, God,” she whispered into the palm of her hand. “Please make me disappear.” The emotional impact of Toni Morrison’s first novel is hard to describe. “The Bluest Eye” shows how one can learn to hate oneself. It shows exactly why representation and balance matter, without it you end up with “[t]he total absence of human recognition—the glazed separateness.” It is not an “easy” book to read, watching those who are powerless turn on those they can attack is difficult. As she writes, “for we were not strong, only aggressive; we were not free, merely licensed; we were not compassionate, we were polite; not good, but well behaved.” The insights and the beauty in the writing make it all work and make it more than worth the effort. It is not newsworthy to note what an incredible artist she was with words and with the depths of human emotion. She nails so much of our current situation with thoughts like “[h]e read greedily but understood selectively, choosing the bits and pieces of other men’s ideas that supported whatever predilection he had at the moment.” The main thrust of the novel is about the idea of beauty, who gets to decide it and what is really worth in the end? But instead of me trying to say it, let’s close with Ms. Morrison’s amazing words. “Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to another—physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion.” ( )

This book is devastatingly sad, which is the only reason I did not give it five stars. It is heartwrenching, thought-provoking, and inventive. ( )

Toni Morrison's first book is a marvel. It examines the many issues, such as race, class, gender, and age, with a focus on how blacks are oppressed by traditional ideals of beauty (blue eyes, straight blond hair.) Set in the industrial town of Lorain, Ohio, where many Southern blacks migrated for a better life, Morrison uses the lives and thoughts of the central characters of her book to create animosity and schisms. These characters range widely in age, gender, intelligence, etc. The book is intense and dark, and skips around quite a bit, leaving the reader to pull together on her or his own what messages are intended. ( )

This would have been largely a punishing read--nearly all of the characters exist in misery with little-to-no redemption or celebration--but for Morrison's masterful storytelling. I went into the book expecting one thing and got something else wholly different. Throughout the book, I kept imagining the process of French braiding. From the start, we know what's going to happen, but Morrison is going to spend most of the time before we get there adding piece upon piece to the narrative. Building context. Slowly mounting. The final chapter is possibly the most powerful denouement I've ever read. I am embarrassed that I've gone this long as an avid reader without having read any of Morrison's novels, but I am equally excited to finally be on that road to experience more of her work. ( )

I have said "poetry." But "The Bluest Eye" is also history, sociology, folklore, nightmare and music. It is one thing to state that we have institutionalized waste, that children suffocate under mountains of merchandised lies. It is another thing to demonstrate that waste, to re-create those children, to live and die by it. Miss Morrison's angry sadness overwhelms.

And it is the blackness that accounts for, that creates,the vacuum edged with distaste in white eyes.
But we listened for the one who would say, “Poor little girl,” or, “Poor baby,” but there was only head-wagging where those words should have been. We looked for eyes creased with concern, but saw only veils.
