Disabled Body in Toni Morrisons Novel Sula

Timofte, Irina
Abstract
This thesis identifies similarities between body imagery and in Toni Morrison's 1973 novel Sula and in selected disability literary and theoretical texts. The purpose of this comparison is to determine whether the alternative attitudes towards the body that these texts propose challenge common cultural concepts of normalcy and beauty. The study also outlines similarities in the social and political context out of which these texts appeared.
