Slavery and motherhood in Toni Morrison’s Beloved


Shyama Bhardwaj

The novel is a portrait of the black slave woman's experience. The story is important for its demonstration of the concern that slave mothers had for the welfare of their children. Additionally, it is an attempt to understand the forces, both historically and personally, that would cause a mother to murder her child rather than allow her to experience the horrors of slavery.
