Pivotal passages in Beloved

In your questions in this week’s discussion, it is clear that the flashbacks can confuse us as readers, that there are details we miss, that there are whole sections that require re-reading. In class, we can think about the extent to which this is important in how the story is told. We will continue to discuss the novel so that we can all understand it better.

For homework this week, consider a scene that you think is so pivotal that if it hadn’t happened, the whole novel would be different. Identify the scene, and write a post, 350-500 words, about what is so important about it for the novel.

Categorize your post under Homework, Week 10. Choose the tag Beloved, and any other tags that apply or that you want to create.
