In her novels Sula (1973) and Paradise (1997) Toni Morrison considers the impact of patrilineage on two homoracial communities. Through a consideration of the subjugation and the alienation of women in these works, a shifting focus in Morrison’s writing becomes evident: a repositioning of race from subject to critical lens.
