Why is this work important? Her words remain vital to imagining, what Morrison labels “the soul of art and its bones.” Instead of Othering, her work and that of others in a similar vein allow readers “an opportunity to be and to become the Other.” Only then might we recognize the image of the ultimate and divine Stranger in all of us.
