Abstract

[This quotation is taken from Morrison’s acceptance speech for the National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters in 1996. As such, Morrison focuses on the dangers, the necessities, and the pleasures of the reading/writing life in the late twentieth century. For her, the dangers are captured in two anecdotes. In one, it is the danger that, in her words, “our busied-up, education-as-horse-race, trophy-driven culture poses even to the entitled.” In the second, she teases out “the physical danger to writing suffered by persons with enviable educations who live in countries where the practice of modern art is illegal and subject to official vigilantism and murder.”]
