Reaction to Beloved
I'd say Beloved is one of my top five favorite works we've read this year. I think the quality of Morrison's writing is enough to carry the novel alone. So many times when reading or during our dicussions I would just think "genius." Honestly, I feel like I'll need to read it at least 200 more times to pick up on all (or at least most) of the countless symbols, themes, and motifs. For me, every part of the novel told from Paul D's prospective or about Paul D's past were the most memorable. I still don't quite understand Paul D, or where he is I mean. I know his heart is a "tin can", but his actions say otherwise.
