Toni Morrison’s Beloved [Michele L. Simms-Burton]

All Levels | One of the most celebrated writers in American English, Toni Morrison creates masterful and complicated narrative structures and employs neologisms to convey unspeakable things often left unspoken. We’ll look at the structure of Morrison’s masterpiece, Beloved (1987) — a narrative of enslaved Africans and their white enslavers — as an example for stories about loss, violence, memory, and healing. This class will be geared for general readers as well as teachers working with or thinking about working with this formative text.
