I really like the book Beloved. Unlike the other stories that I have read about this time period, Beloved actually brings the reader into the time period and makes historical references that are relevant to the story. I love Morrison's style of writing because it is simple yet very complex. Like Faulkner, Morrison creates many layers to the story. It is also cool that she is writing from an african american's perspective instead of the stereotypical white perspective. The story really gets to the deep struggles that formed slaves faced after they were set free. in the case of Sethe Morrison shows that while slavery may be over in many aspects it still exists due to te scars, both physical and emotional, that haunt her everyday. I also really like that this book is not directly about slavery or the historical aspect of the time and that there is a more personal story going on. I think the way Morrison mashes the personal and historical into one really grabs the readers attention and develops the story more than if the two were separated.
