This book examines Toni Morrison's highly influential works through the lens of philanthropy. The point of departure of this endeavor is the keen observation that philanthropy has always played a leading role in US discourses about the nation itself. While doing so, time and again philanthropy has also been used as a means of social stratification-especially for so-called social minorities such as the African American community, whose historical experience within the United States is at the very heart of Morrison's novels. This book pursues the goal of a twofold understanding-on the one hand, through offering a rather innovative access to Morrison's works, the project allows for new insights into one of today's most influential authors. On the other hand, this book explores the productivity of the concept of philanthropy for literary and cultural studies-a concept hitherto largely neglected by scholars in both academic fields.
