    • Richie and Beloved's Narrative Haunting in Beloved and Sing, Unburied, Sing: Salvage the Stories to Salve the Ghosts

      David Davis; Madeline Cole
      In the cosmos of Ward and Morrison, ghosts are literal metaphors of traumatic memories that emerge from holes – the unspeakable – in stories. When Sethe and River tell Beloved and Richie stories full circle, the ghosts’ bodies, as well as their verbal patterns, change, and I argue this change signifies their identity’s trajectory from wrecked to salvaged, forgotten to remembered, dehumanized to humanized.
