Abstract

"Folk traditions in Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye" investigates the use of folk traditions employed unconsciously by the characters in the novel during their daily lives. Beginning by forming a usable definition of folklore, the thesis investigates folk traditions in the areas of the family, religion, songs, music, medicine, and death. Discussed in the novel are examples of these traditions as they are lived by the characters.
