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 : "There is nothing more alienating than having your pleasures disputed by someone with a theory," writes Lauren Berlant. Yet the ways in which we live sexuality and intimacy have been profoundly shaped by theories - especially psychoanalytic ones, which have helped to place sexuality and desire at the center of the modern story about what a person is and how her history should be read. At the same time, other modes of explanation have been offered by popular and mass culture. In these domains, sexual desire is not deemed the core story of life; it is mixed up with romance, a particular version of the story of love. In this small theoretical novella-cum-dictionary entry, Lauren Berlant engages love and desire in separate entries. In the first entry, Desire mainly describes the feeling one person has for something else: it is organized by psychoanalytic accounts of attachment, and tells briefly the history of their importance in critical theory and practice. The second entry, on Love, begins with an excursion into fantasy, moving away from the parent-child structure so central to psychoanalysis and looking instead at the centrality of context, environment, and history. The entry on Love describes some workings of romance across personal life and commodity culture, the place where subjects start to think about fantasy on behalf of their actual lives. Whether viewed psychoanalytically, institutionally, or ideologically, love is deemed always an outcome of fantasy. Without fantasy, there would be no love. Desire/Love takes us on a tour of all of the things that sentence might mean.
