Her writings are centered on African American themes. The reader of her novels is constantly in the presence of pessimism. This is due to the turmoil the African Americans always experienced throughout American history, particularly because of slavery and racial segregation. In these respects, she writes about the individual as well as the community. Moreover, the Nobel Prize in literature she won in 1993 attests to the richness she displays in her treatment of the different circumstantial and universal themes, and for the unconventional techniques she adopts.
