Three contemporary novels of slavery – Margaret Walker’s
Jubilee (1966), Sherley Anne Williams’s Dessa
Rose (1986) and Toni Morrison’s Beloved (1987) –
are the central focus of Liberating Narratives. In
significantly different ways that reflect their individual
and socio-political contexts of origin, these three novels
can all be read as critiques of historical representation
and as alternative spaces for remembrance – `sites of
memory‘ – that attempt to shift the conceptual ground on
which our knowledge of the past is based.
