Everyone has an experience a bad dream or a moment that was so horrific you do your best to try and neglect it pushing it further and further back into your mind Forgotten until something happens that triggers the memory and you seem to experience the event for a painstaking second time Rememory Sethe has tried to forget most of her life Rememory is that act of attempting to forget yet the recollection still surfaces vividly The plot of Beloved by Toni Morrison unfolds slowly and intricately by Sethe facing her past only though reminiscing the events she has worked so hard to surpress for many years The years of her slavery were rough ones ones full of loss abuse fright When she escapes slavery and settles at 124 she seeks to cleanse her life with a fresh start and forget the sorrow of her past They forgot her like a bad dreamremembering seemed unwise P274 This almost works it actually does for many years but the arrival of Paul D stirs up her past beginning with Sweet Home Thank God I dont have to rememory or say a thing because you know it P194 Sethe didnt have to tell Paul D how things were he lived through it along side her he knew the afflictions Perhaps the memories he brought with him only added to Sethes burden until finally she was forced to relive it But she was never going to progress in life if she could not reflect on her past She knew that she did not necessarily try and forget her trouble rather just store them away until the proper time came Paul Ds arrival was the time The most tragic of all Sethes trials was the murder or her daughter it was something she could not live with and would haunt her until it was confronted The arrival of Beloved marked the process You rememory me Yes I remember you
