A must read
For all those people who all are saying that this is a total trash, has grotesque imagery, too much sex,too much violence, pedophile, incest etc etc ......
They all should know that all these thing exist in our society. People like this and things like this exist in our society. They are everywhere,everytime, you just cant ignore and escape from this.
The novel starts from a reference to "60 millions and more" all those African slaves who lost their life due to the Atlantic slave trade. It's easy to just say that they 'lost' their life. The condition,the mental and physical torture, the sexual violence, children weren't familiar with the term family, for them there was no family. The condition of women and how they were just used to produce slaves and were raped time and time again from their slave master and what not. How can someone justify this?
Toni Morrison, wrote this masterpiece to show the condition of the slaves and the after affect. A post modern novel shows that the loss and the slavery is not over. Though the physical slavery is over but what about the mental slavery? what about the nightmares? All these things are something which someone can't change. A sense of loss, a loss which someone can never overcome.
Through Magical realism, Morssion write this piece and says this story should be talked about and remembered but never to pass on.
This should not be passed on...
