In what way has your reading of 'Beloved' enhanced your understanding of what a novelist can achieve through fiction.
The novel 'Beloved' is Toni Morison's representation of the way black people were treated during the time of slavery. Through fiction Toni Morrison recreates experiences that many black people had to go through during the civil war. In 'Beloved' Morrison explores themes of love, family, and self-possession in a world where slavery has only recently become a thing of the past.
Part history, part ghost story, and part historical fiction. The novel seeks to understand the impact of slavery, both on the psychology of an individual and on the wider patterns of culture and history.
The novel is based on a main focus, a character called Sethe. Through Sethes experiences we are introduced to the emotions of an ordinary black women. Through Sethes journey we witness experiences from her past that sees to haunt her in her newly found future. The past haunts her through her re-memory as Sethe and Paul D both carry the burdens of their pasts, Paul D says to Seth that they have "more yesterday then anybody. We need some kinda tomorrow"
