Part 2


Beloved by Toni Morrison involves a runaway slave named Sethe who killed off her newborn baby, Beloved, to save her from living the life she lived.In an effort to keep Beloved’s memory alive, she takes in a random woman who claims she is Beloved. “Denver tended to her, watched her sound sleep, listened to her labored breathing and, out of love and a breakneck possessiveness that charged her, hid like a personal blemish Beloved’s incontinence” My scene was when Sethe believes that Beloved is really her daughter. Throughout the passage one paragraph that stood out to me was how attached Denver got to Beloved from the moment they found her. This was intriguing because Denver was not the type to be dependent on someone so much, she was very self absorbed. I chose to do a concrete image of this passage because the image of the skull represents death and Beloved is believed to come back from the dead, but isn’t believed to be dead. I believe that if Beloved never came then Denver and Sethe would not have been the same.

  1. Yelwasli, your image is dark and mysterious, not only because of the shape you chose, but also because of the colors. What program did you use to generate the image? I ask because I would love to add it to our list of resources. I’m also curious because it did not remove small words the way Wordle does, so you have a lot of insignificant words, like to. What words from the passage do you want to stand out the most? You could always paste those words in more times to make them stand out more.
