I think Toni Morrison's writing style is highly unique. Her book, Beloved, takes place in the middle of the action and never stops running. The foundation of her story is clear, yet there are many undertones, relationships, and past events which constantly shape the story. Her style of writing truly struck me in chapter 6. The chapter begins when Beloved comes out of the water, seen by both Denver and Sethe. The conversation concerning Sethe's diamond earrings, though, was the conversation that stood out to me as striking.
Morrison managed to use the tangible object of mere diamond earrings to explain the relationship between Sethe and Beloved. More of Sethe's, and even Beloved's past, is revealed. Denver, too saw the distinct relationship between Sethe and her Beloved. Denver also sees more of Beloved and can come to grips with her past, and her "life" now.
Yes, from just one simple discussion about diamond earrings, a whole internal story unfolds. A story which shows the vivid personalities of the various characters in the novel, and one which quickly progresses the storyline of the novel. Morrison's writing is eloquent, yet concise. Descriptive and narrative, and overall wonderful. She makes the book interesting to read.
