Scars tell Stories in Beloved Scars are an incredible means of story telling throughout Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. As the story of Sethe and her children unfold, scars are seen on the skin of many characters, and along with them are deep painful memories that cannot be repressed. Within the first chapter, scars are seen on Sethe’s back as she explains to Paul D. the traumatic events that occurred on the plantation where they both once lived as slaves. These scars set a stage and a metaphor for the scars, both figurative and literal, to come. Morrison demonstrates that scars are much like painful pasts that people wish to hide and forget.

“Could death and decay be growing where the child had grew so soon after?” Throughout Beverley Farmer’s “ Collected stories” readers are presented with raw emotions and the depths of human thought. Farmer simplistically contrasts both the radiating goodness and unbearable brutality of life in her stories “Inheritance”, “A Woman in a Mirror” and “A Woman with Black Hair”. Her female protagonists are confronted with death, illness and rape but deny their feelings of isolation and emotional displacement and instead are prompted to delve into the depths of their inner self. As the characters question their identity amid crisis and embittered memories, the stories progress to a climax in which a decision is made about the future. Farmer highlights the inner resilience of her characters as they come to realise their place in the world.
This is a very good thing. Because of her stories of her encounters of everyday life, we know three things: the Holocaust was real, the Jews were being persecuted, and that it was very hard on everyone that lived in Holland. Anne’s death was very sad, especially because in her diary, she talked about what she would do after the war was over, and all the things she wanted to do when she grew up.
