Nel Wright grows up to become a wife and mother, happy to remain in her hometown of Medallion, Ohio. Sula Peace leaves Medallion to experience college, men, and life in the big city, an exceptional choice for a black woman to make in the late 1920s.

Bloom’s Modern Critical Interpretations Toni Morrison’s. Sterling Professor of the Humanities Yale University. The storyteller of Sula (1975) and of Song of Solomon (1977) has been replaced by a formidable ideologue, who perhaps knows too well what she wishes her book to accomplish. Morrison strongly insists that her literary context is essentially African American, and Beloved overtly invokes slave narratives as it precursors.

This novel describes the significant differences in the upbringings of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, two young girls and best friends who eventually separate due to betrayal and unrealized character. In the community of the Bottom in the city of Medallion, Ohio, Nel Wright was brought up in a conventional household, her mother teaching her to abide to the expectations of society. Sula Peace, on the other hand, was raised in a household as unconventional as can be. Living with her mother Hannah and her grandmother Eva, both who are seen by the town as loose and lacking moral. Despite the major differences in their home-life, and Nel’s mother’s opinion on Hannah Peace, Nel and Sula were inseparable. Following a traumatic incident, the drowning of a child, the two grew apart.
Years later, Nel decides to conform to the life that society expects of her as loyal wife and mother. Sula, on the other hand, leads an entirely unconventional life, which is evident when she returns to the Bottom after leaving for 10 years following Nel’s wedding. Sula’s return was seen as a return of evil by the people of the Bottom. As Sula’s return came “accompanied by a plague of robins,” (89) the robins became a sign of evil to the people. The news that Sula had put her grandmother in a home and her involvement in interracial relationships secured the towns view of her as evil. The ending of her and Nel’s friendship, however, came as a result of Sula’s affair with Nel’s husband, who then left Nel.
Nel blames Sula for the ending of their friendship, as well as the destruction of her marriage and confronts Sula when visiting after hearing of Sula’s sickness. Sula reveals to her that just because Nel thought she was good, doesn't mean she was the good one. She says “How you know?...About who was good? How you know it was you?” (146). Nel’s encounter with Eva secures this notion of Nel’s skewed perception of her own goodness. As Eva neglects to recognize that Nel is not Sula because they are the same, saying “You. Sula. What’s the difference?” (168). Morrison is making a statement about the ambiguity of good and evil. Though Sula was technically responsible for the death of the child, Nel was no better, feeling pleasure watching the child be engulfed by the surrounding water.
Ultimately, Sula refers to the question “what determines good and evil?” through the genius characterization of Nel Wright and deep description of the life of Sula Peace. I rate this book 5 stars and would definitely recommend reading this thought-provoking book.

The years depicted in this haunting book, followed the same path that my mother took growing up as a young girl in rural Virginia and eventually moving to the Washington, DC area. She was shocked that the times hadn't changed as much in the south when she visited her old home as it had in the DC area. She witnessed a black family being denied a table at a restaurant on one of her trips. She and my dad stood up and said. "Then we're not eating here either." So they left. It was an unusual action back then. But I was so proud of her. One small stand for unjust behavior. But, it was a start. This book was brilliant and captured the ways of people in those early years. Bravo for miss Morrison's stark attempt to bring the world this story

No review of any length could possibly do justice to the impact this novel had on me. When I read it I was already a fan of Morrison, yet I thought I had read the best of her talents after Beloved and Song of Solomon. Well, I was wrong; Sula may not be as risky as Song of Solomon or as "important" as Beloved, but it is one of the few novels I have ever read where not a single word added or detracted could possibly improve it.

The way Toni Morrison was able to write a beautiful, strange and enduring history of an entire black community in less than two hundred pages is a staggering achievement. Some of the imagery and symbolism from this novel is so haunting that it comes to me almost every day; Sula's fingertip incident, Shadrack's bell, Chicken Little flying through the air, the fate of Plum.. just read and see, it will haunt you.

Sula will arrest you from the first sentence, and the beautiful, sad, funny and strange novel will leave you breathless, and the end will leave you in tears. Anyone who has ever had a friend become an enemy will find something valuable in Sula.

I recommend this novel to anyone and everyone; I buy it at used book stars all of the time just to give to people. This is one of the greatest books by a living writer, in any language. Do yourself a favor.

I ordered the bluest eye by Toni Morrison and decided to order this book as well. In my opinion this is the better novel between the two. While the bluest eye is often heralded as Morrison's best work, I think it pales in comparison to sula. I won't spoil the novel I would just recommend anyone to read it who is interested in Africanamerican lit

Simply beautiful. I agree with every word in the positive reviews. Brilliant. Moving and engaging from page one. One of the best books I've ever read, by one of the greatest authors of our time. Maybe all time. History will tell, but do not miss this now. Laugh and cry and fall in love with the characters living in the Bottom of heaven, especially our girls Nel and Sula. Rich, lyrical, expertly crafted. Just a masterpiece, but approachable. It's brilliant writing for everyone. Speaks to race, class, gender, social issues if you're interested, but also a fabulous read if you just want great narrative and characters you will care about and remember for a long time.

"Sula" is a period drama taking place between 1920 and 1965 that deals with the lives of the townspeople of The Bottom - the black part of the segregated town of Medallion - and a girl named Sula born with a snake-shaped birthmark over her eye. Sula represents a rebellion against all of the notions the town people have about what a black woman should be, while her best friend Nel conforms to community standards. This is the story of their complex relationship, of community in the time of segregation and the ways it changes as the system comes to an end - but most of all, through the stories of Sula and Nel, and their mothers and grandmothers, it is in many forms about the expectations on black woman in relationship to the community and to each other, the different roles available and how external forces change them.
