Description
This compelling volume explores Toni Morrison's classic novel through the lens of slavery. The book examines Morrison's life and influences and takes a critical look at key ideas related to slavery in Beloved, such as the role of slavery in both the forging and destruction of an African-American identity, the impact of slavery on family relationships, and the psychological trauma caused by slavery. Contemporary perspectives on the subject of slavery are presented as well, touching upon topics such as the global problem of human trafficking and the role of multinational corporations in modern day slavery.
