Authors Women and Nature in Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye

Nooshin Hajalilo - Department of English, Ahar Islamic Azad University, Ahar, Iran


This paper examines Toni Morrison’s first novel, The Bluest Eye, in terms of the relation between woman and nature through the lens of ecofeminism. It attempts to show man’s domination over woman and human’s domination over nature through an ecofeminist reading of Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye. Perceiving this twin domination, the study of the text will reveal the life of an eleven year old girl, Pecola Breedlove, who is raped by her father, Cholly Breedlove. Symbolizing Pecola with nature’s quality as passive, weak, and submissive, the study focuses on the impending danger for man if woman and nature are deliberately tampered and displaced by them. This activity of willful annihilation leads to the ecological breakdown
