Summary
"Taking a close look at all the key male figures in Toni Morrison's eight novels to date, this book explores Morrison's admitted, but critically neglected, interest in the relationships between African American men and women and the "axes" on which these relationships turn. Most Morrison scholarship deals with her female characters. Can't I Love What I Criticize? offers a response to this imbalance and to Morrison's call for more work on men, who remain, in her words, "outside of that little community value thing."" "Understanding Morrison's treatment of her male characters, says Susan Neal Mayberry, becomes crucial to grasping her success in "countering the damage done by a spectrum of sometimes misguided "isms" - including white American feminism. Morrison's version of masculinity suggests that black men have "successfully retained their special vitality in spite of white male resistance" and that "their connections to black women have saved their lives.""--Book jacket
