Question

MCQ

Direction: Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

“Do you have your audience in mind when you sit down to write,” Toni Morrison was once asked. “Only me,” she replied. I love the faith she has in her own craft. This is her talking to students in Mississippi. “As I write I don’t imagine a reader or listener, ever. I am the reader and the listener myself, and I think I am an excellent reader… I mean I really know what’s going on… I have to assume that I am also this very critical, very fastidious, and not an easily-taken-in reader who is smart enough to participate in the text—a lot.” And she speaks often of loving the rewrite—” The best part of all, the absolutely most delicious part… I try to make it look like I never touched it.” It is her care for the gradually discovered story that makes us fully trust her. It is how we are intimately altered by her books, and it was why Beloved would change everything.
