Park, Gui Suk. Body, Trauma, and Narrative: Toni Morrisons God Help the Child. Studies in English Language & Literature 46.2 (2020): 71-90. This paper analyzes the quest for identity of a young African-American woman whose subjectivity is affected and determined by colorism internalized within the African-American community in Toni Morrisons God Help the Child. In the novel, Bride, a professional woman with deep black skin, seems to reestablish her self successfully separate from the traumatic past. In the process of the narrative, her body is foregrounded as an authorized site of building the new identity. As the narrative develops, however, she comes to confront her identity crisis, which also emerges through the body being transformed. The signs of her body conversion into a little girl are linked to the past trauma and secret that the narrative revolves around and reveals gradually. Therefore, this study centers on Brides body transformation in relation to her trauma and the narrative structure of revelation. (Gyeongsang National University)
