Linda Pastan uses her poem Marks to emphasize on how easily it is to judge someone for what they lack instead of what they contribute.

It 's our history as women, it 's what we are expected to do, and we are expected to do it well. Take care of your husband, take care of your children and take care of your household; that is the job women were given and although times have changed; that stereotype still remains.

2-Healing and Forgiveness as a Sign of Altruistic Filicide: Morrison points out "the past, until you confront it, until you live through it, it keeps coming back in other forms. The shapes redesign themselves in other constellations, until you get a chance to play it over again" (qtd.in Cássia Freitas de Aquino 198). Beloved's return to 124 Bluestone Road is very symbolic because she has the key to forgiveness for herself, her mother, sister, and the whole Bluestone Road community. A-Recreating a lost Relationship: Sethe and Beloved: Although Beloved could not forgive her mother for sending her alone to the other side, Sethe comes to realize that only chance to overcome her past as a slave and her altruistic filicide is to remember and recreate her past.

Somebody can say, that it was the spirit of the time - women had subservient roles and were overshadowed by their husbands, brothers, fathers.
There 's a subtle wonderfulness to this story. It 's such a relatable story that involves day to day recounts of activities, Kimberly and her mother 's struggles and strives, financially and culturally. Especially from Aunt Paula. Once she said: “You can release your heart, older sister” (148).
