Spanning four decades, these essays, speeches and meditations interrogate the world around us. The collection is structured in three parts introduced by a prayer for the dead of 9/11, a meditation on Martin Luther King and a eulogy for James Baldwin. Morrison's Nobel lecture, on the power of language, is accompanied by lectures to Amnesty International and the Newspaper Association of America. Morrison's writing has always been concerned with race, gender and politics. Some of her most powerful pieces here are concerned with the role of writers and artists in responding to the challenges of the times, whether it be racism, globalisation or the current state of politics. Throughout A Mouth Full of Blood our search for truth, moral integrity and expertise is met by Toni Morrison with controlled anger, elegance and erudition.
