About this product
- DescriptionThis work expands the scope of Morrison's project to examine the ways and means of memory in the preservation of belief systems passed down from the earliest civilizations (both the Classical Greek and the Ancient Egyptian) as a challenge to the sterility of modernity. Moreover, this research explores the author's specific use of Foucauldian theory as a vehicle for her narrative, which reclaims the very origins of civilization's primal concerns with life, procreation and regeneration, springing from the very Heart of Africa. Despite the weight of white authority and the disparaging of blackness, Beloved's multiple ghosts conjure up a legacy so potent that authoritarian discourse has been able to entirely erase it, a legacy that still speaks to us from a heritage we longer ackwledge yet that nevertheless remains, and sustains us.
