Description : Essay from the year 2012 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 100, West Chester University of Pennsylvania, course: African American Literary Theory, language: English, abstract: Toni Morrison’s Sula is an extremely complex work of fiction that some argue functions as parable, satire, or Black-feminist writing. However, the complexity of the tale of Sula and Nel’s lives requires analysis including all of these elements. Morrison skillfully blends together gender roles with the binary opposition as she includes Biblical allusions to give clues to the characters’ personalities and future actions as they struggle against their community. It becomes clear to the reader through the characters’ actions and thoughts, that the world, which the Bottom created for itself, is inherently contradictory as the citizens of the community struggle to maintain binary thinking. Sula and Shadrack represent the evil (or at least unacceptable) in the traditional good/evil binary that the Bottom’s community upholds. Both Sula and Shadrack face ostracization because of the negativity that is attached to them. Shadrack, however, chooses to live within the acceptable boundaries of the community with his celebration of Suicide Day. The community sees his celebration as bizarre, but in no way a threat to their existence as the years pass (Morrison 15).

Description : The Bugis Chronicle of Bone is a masterwork in the historiographical tradition of South Sulawesi in Indonesia. Written in the late seventeenth century for a very specific political purpose, it describes the steady growth of the kingdom of Bone from the fourteenth century onwards. The local conquests of the fifteenth century, closely linked to agricultural expansion, give way to the long conflict with the Makasar state of Gowa in the sixteenth century. Forced Islamisation in 1611 is dealt with in detail, leading finally to first contact with the Dutch East India Company in 1667. This edition presents a diplomatic version of the best Bugis text, together with the first full English translation and an extensive introduction covering the philological approach to the edition, as well as the historical and cultural significance of the work. A structure based on the reigns of successive rulers allows for stories about the circumstances of each ruler and, particularly, the often dramatic processes and politics of succession. The chronicle is a rich source for historians and anthropologists seeking to understand societies beyond Europe. It provides a window on to this Austronesian-speaking society before the impact of significant external influences. This is history from within, covering more than three centuries.
