Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison – What is it about?
Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighbourhood freak threw himself off a rooftop in a futile attempt at takeoff. For the rest of his life, he too would be trying to climb. In Song of Solomon, Toni Morrison translates the coming-of-age storey so boldly as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez with this beautifully conceived book. As Morrison traces Milkman from his rustbelt town to the home of his kin, she exposes the residents of a truly understanding dark planet to a whole host of strippers and sailors, liars and assassins.
The New York Times bestseller author Toni Morrison has been praised by President Barack Obama also. He said “You can’t go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Sula, everything else — they’re transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them.”
Toni Morrison transmissions the upcoming past so daringly as Saul Bellow or Gabriel Garcia Marquez in this beautifully conceived New York Times bestselling book.
Song of Solomon – The book review
Macon Dead, a high-ranking northern-blacks businessman, seeks to protect his family from the threat and despair of the black rank. The rank with whom he shares the neighbourhood in an attempt to conceal his Southern, Workers’ Origins. The strategy is leading his son, “Milkman,” named after his mother has nursed him long past age – only opposite the road his dad hoped. Milkman is forced into the arms of an abusive, lower-class wife into an underground circle of blacks who repay white abuse in the form and learn that by knowing his ancestors’ errors as they apply to themselves he will realise his own ability.
