SparkNotes: Beloved: Character List

sethe

In a fit of frightened confusion, she killed Beloved hoping that her dead daughter would not have to undergo the psychologically torturous experiences of sexual assault and rape. Of all her mother's children, Sethe was the only one given a name and allowed to live. Sethe as Mother Even though Sethe never gets to experience the whole mother-daughter thing, she still ends up a lot more like her mother than she means to. Beloved becomes angry and more demanding, throwing tantrums when she doesn't get her way. He cherishes the lessons he learned from Sixo, who was fortunate enough to retain the healing rituals of his African culture, who never accepted the slave holder's truth as reality, who refused to speak even the slave holder's language, and who loved a woman who was a friend of his mind. Even then, she tries to forget the past and make up for it, instead of grieving, accepting, and working through it. Stamp Paid - Like Baby Suggs, Stamp Paid is considered by the community to be a figure of salvation, and he is welcomed at every door in town.
