This book focuses on the Africo-American she-novelist, Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye regarding Lyotard's theories. First, it pertains to theories of postmodernism and modernism, and it mentions the differences between postmodernism and modernism. After that, this work introduces Jean-François Lyotard, one of the remarkable French postmodern thinkers, and discusses some of his theories such as metanarrative, minornarrative, event, and differend among his theories. Then the book deals with Toni Morrison's life and ideas about the situation of black people's lives. Jean-François Lyotard states the postmodern era is the time when metanarratives and standards of major societies have lost their own and authority. Rejecting the metanarratives of dominant societies, Lyotard believes in the minornarratives and local standards of minor societies. In this sense, Toni Morrison's ideas about the black people's standards of life and beauty, considered as minornarratives in the white society of America, are as important as the white standards of life and beauty.
