The Source of Self-Regard: Selected Essays, Speeches, and Meditations (Hardcover)

Regular price $41.00

by Toni Morrison

Description

Here is the Nobel Prize winner in her own words: a rich gathering of her most important essays and speeches, spanning four decades.
.
These pages give us her searing prayer for the dead of 9/11, her Nobel lecture on the power of language, her searching meditation on Martin Luther King Jr., her heart-wrenching eulogy for James Baldwin.
.
She looks deeply into the fault lines of culture and freedom: the foreigner, female empowerment, the press, money, "Black matter(s)," human rights, the artist in society, the Afro-American presence in American literature. And she turns her incisive critical eye to her own work (The Bluest Eye, Sula, Tar Baby, Jazz, Beloved, Paradise) and that of others.
.
An essential collection from an essential writer, The Source of Self-Regard shines with the literary elegance, intellectual prowess, spiritual depth, and moral compass that have made Toni Morrison our most cherished and enduring voice.
