In 1993 Toni Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Nobel committee described her work as ''characterized by visionary force and poetic import [that] gives life to an essential aspect of American reality.'' Twenty years later, a group of scholars met in Stockholm to commemorate and celebrate Morrison's award, and just as importantly, to critically engage the wealth of scholarship that has sprung up around Morrison's work-both the six novels recognized by the Nobel committee
