Analysis on The Bluest Eye and Steam Pigs

Black women have been absent in the feminist theory, literature and black history as a whole. Writers Toni Morrison with her work The Bluest Eye and Melissa Lucashenko with Steam Pigs have tried to change that. In their works they gave power to a black woman that was isolated before.

The plot of the book The Bluest Eye tells readers about the life and fate of a young black woman who wanted to have blue eyes and light skin. For her the meaning of life lied in the acquisition of blue eyes, a color, which would help to change her life.

The book describes the life and events of the spring of 1941. At that time Africa was going through bad times, poverty and chaos were happening then. The reader should also remember about the oppressive social conditions and internal family conflict in the girl’s family. Blue eyes are an illusion of a great life; it is a fraud of oneself, and the dream of well-being.

Toni Morrison attempted to describe and share with the readers all emotions and feelings experienced by the people of Africa. Using a variety of stylistic devices, the author conveys the idea of strength through expressiveness. The language is a powerful tool, which has the potential to influence the minds and thoughts of people who read the book.

For an attempt to represent life in Africa in the atmosphere of racism, women’s humiliation, hunger and poverty, and the description of the topical problems of people, Toni Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1993. After the publication of this novel, people realized that everybody is equal, and there is no difference in the color of the eyes and skin, and the language we speak.

Melissa Lucashenko’s novel Steam Pigs addresses aboriginal identity and suburbs from the perspective of an Indigenous writer and protagonist. Lucashenko’s examination of aboriginal identity in a suburban setting is a unique combination.

Steam Pigs is a combination of an educational and an autobiographical novel.

Steam Pigs is a countering, innovative and unique novel that uses a working class outside suburban setting to show important social issues, including aboriginal identity, feminism, domestic violence, gender, racism, and alcohol and drug abuse.

The anti-suburban tradition states that the suburbs are backward, boring, repressive, materialistic, conformist, sexist, anti-intellectual, racist, ugly and predictable, and thus they must be rejected, preferably by physical escape.

The escape of the protagonist in the novel into an inner urban environment keeps the anti-suburban tradition and shows the influence of innovative and radical aspects in the novel.

Black women have been absent in the feminist theory, literature and black history as a whole. Writers Toni Morrison with her work The Bluest Eye and Melissa Lucashenko with Steam Pigs have tried to change that. In their works they gave power to a black woman that was isolated before.
