It is easy for cataclysmic traumatism to press to obscurity past history because of the weakness and shame of the human spirit itself. History is never a clean palindrome backward and forward, because during its recollection there is always an emotional motive, and nearly every motive is bruised. In her magnum opus Beloved, Toni Morrison lends her semiotic voice to people, who, during their own frangible history, were denied language itself. In one of the most spiritually brave novels ever written, Morrison refuses to allow the reader to disavow the imprint of history and pronounces the painful and debilitating effects it has on the collective humanity that does so. You will not read this novel and arise unmarked from the passing.

Denver believes that Beloved is her dead sister that has come back and develops an obsessive monomania for taking care of her. So anemic is Denver's sense of self and so strong is her spiritual loneliness that she becomes utterly obsessed with Beloved. [...]
