Rememory

“If a house burns down, it’s gone, but the place-the picture of it-stays, and not just in my rememory, but out there, in the world. What I remember is a picture floating around there outside my head. I mean, even if I don’t think about it, even if I die, the picture of what I did, or knew, or saw is still out there.” – Sethe (p 36) Beloved

 

One of Toni Morrison’s most famous uses of imagery is the concept of “rememory” in Beloved, described by the protagonist Sethe.

Often, feel like in life I’m walking in a circle and I keep passing through the same rememory.
