Veröld - Hús Vigdísar
Gregory Alan Phipps, lektor í enskum bókmenntum við Mála- og menningardeild Háskóla Íslands, heldur fyrirlesturinn Be-loved: Toni Morrison and the Redemptive Possibilities of Love.
Does love heal all wounds? Toni Morrison’s 1987 novel Beloved explores this question from multiple perspectives, representing how different examples of love confront trauma, despair, and state-sanctioned atrocities. Spotlighting the ruinous impact of slavery on specific individuals and the American nation as a whole, Beloved captures not only the versatility but also the occasional inadequacy of love as a healing force. This paper considers how Morrison’s novel frames the diverse interrelationship between love and trauma.
