My methodology was an interpretative approach largely using qualitative measures which consist of a close examination of materials that highlight the social and historical impact of American slavery. I have presented a holistic understanding of the effects of slavery on America through analysis of Beloved, one of the most prolific neo-slavery narratives. I specifically focused on how Morison molds the bodies of her characters to expose the chronic injury that slavery inflicted on American society. In support of my interpretation, I searched for the meaningful impact of slavery within correlating scholarly journals that investigate or are in conversation with Morrison's work.
