Toni Morrison: A Literary Legend

It took years of maturing before I could read a Toni Morrison novel in its entirety. The characters were complex. The storylines were layered. The messages within were on a deeper level. I avoided discussions of her work because it simply went over my head.

But when I finally sat down to watch interviews—where she kept it all the way real—I noticed her grace and urgency to introduce characters and deliver prose that no one else could. Her writing lives on while her spirit rests in paradise. A literary legend indeed!
