  • Nel's Dream
    1,194 words
    What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore-And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over- like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? While Langston Hughes authors this poem, A Dream Deferred, it can easily be interpreted as Toni Morrison's description of Nel and her life of sorrow and dissatisfaction. Sula and Nel, the protagonists in Toni Morrison's Sula, are each the only daughters...

  • Sula And Nel
    974 words
    The best way to sum up Nel and Sula lies in a quote from the novel Sula. Morrison tells the reader that two very different black girls grew up in the Bottom. The first speaks of Nel, described by the narrator as one whose parents had succeeded in rubbing [her] down to a dull glow any sparkle or sputter she had (24). A townswoman describes when Sula drank beer she never belched (136). Obviously these two characters are extremely diverse. Sula felt no regret, and Nel was a nobody. Through differen...

  • Toni Morrison's Sula The Concept Of Self Identity
    1,637 words
    "Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle", wrote Lewis Carroll in his famous novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, implying that the self is a complex entity and that identity is a mysterious conundrum difficult to unravel. The puzzling theme of identity and self-discovery is one prominent in literature around the world, specifically in American literature. This theme overrides in many of Toni Morrison's works, including Sula. Although she does not declare identity as one of the bas...
