This clip from The Lion King reminds me a lot of Sethe and the issues she faces. The past/running from the past is a key part of Beloved. Sethe is forced to face a literal embodiment of her past when Beloved shows up at her doorstep. Until Beloved forces her to face her past, Sethe spends a large amount of time trying to forget, because the memories are so painful.
Question for the crowd: Do y'all think that Rafiki's advice could pertain to Sethe's situation?
