High-topped Shoes and Other Signifiers of Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity in Selected Fiction by William Faulkner and Toni Morrison examines the means through which individuals, historically, have constructed their social and personal identities. Focusing primarily on selected fiction by William Faulkner and Toni Morrison, the work explores the myths embedded in historical and modern artifacts, such as the high-topped shoe and high-heeled slipper, and their impact on the construction of ethnic and gender roles. Combining anthropology and women's studies, this work is an interesting new study of race, gender, class, and ethnicity in literature.
