dc.description.abstract The aim of this research work is to examine the issues of Invisibility and Blindness in Toni Morrison‟s the Bluest Eye. Their interconnectedness renders the process of identity formation nearly impossible. Answering the question who am I? which Has become a recurrent question among no- whites in general and among African Americans in general. Brought to the American shores to serve the economic aspirations of the British colonizers centuries ago, those Africans, men and women, were far from imagining that their people across the Atlantic was but the beginning of a longer struggle their future generations would have to endure in order to gain back some sense of existence .Through her novel, Morrison depicts the plight of a young girl who because of other people‟s judgment finds herself helpless. How do beauty standards and colorism foster Blindness and invisibility is the main question behind this research. What are those forces behind the main character‟s breakdown? Did Pecola voluntarily fall into the trap of colorism and white beauty standards? Pecola is but one victim among others, whose colour was the curse of her life. en_US
