BELOVED AND KRISTEVAN MELANCHOLIC SUBJECT

Abstract

Author(s): Camelia TALEBIAN SADEHI, Helen OULIAEI NIA

Julia Kristeva considers the melancholic subject as the one has a sense of loss and is not able to share it with other people. S/he cannot express her/his feeling as s/he considers it private; however, s/he should use language in order to get rid of her/his sense of loss. In Beloved, Toni Morrison deals with the dark side of slaves’ lives and its mental- physical effects. This article intends to apply Julia Kristeva’s theory of melanchlic subject to Toni Morrison’s Beloved and shed light on the fact that through language the characters deal with their past.
