  1. Toni Morrison's technique of alluding to stereotypes
  2. Twyla's and Roberta's surroundings throughout their friendship
  3. The reader's reaction concerning the social gap between Twyla and Roberta

Never has there been a subject that has aroused as much discussion as racial division. Toni Morrison wrote "Recitatif" in 1983. Twyla and Roberta, two young girls grow up in a segregation atmosphere. Even though this situation will be implicit the entire story long, the author desires to make the reader understand the historical context through permanent tension between these two friends. Indeed, their social classes and cultures will separate them. Through this story, Toni Morrison will imply that discrimination can change a state of mind. This paper will demonstrate first of all Toni Morrison's technique of alluding to stereotypes of racism without ever clearly mentioning it. Before turning to their behaviours' modification through the story, this essay will deal with the fact that Twyla and Roberta have different surroundings throughout their friendship. Finally, we shall examine the reader's reaction concerning the social gap between these two characters.
