This paper examines the relationship between disability and beauty as a
central preoccupation of Toni Morrison’s fictional writing, her critical
discourse and her most recent work as a curator. I am interested in how
Morrison’s critical writing about race and identity intersects with
shifting notions of beauty in her fiction, but also, in turn, how these
ideas can provide a conceptual framework for writing about literature and
disability in general.
