From the archives, a highly resonate conversation with Toni Morrison about transfiguring love, as portrayed in her novel Beloved. Although Beloved is set after the American Civil War, it deals with a serious modern problem: trying to love oneself and another human being at the same time; love under duress, and the consequences of distorted love. This episode followed the filmic adaptation of Beloved, but Morrison discusses the depths of a book that a film cannot touch.
