Through Beloved, Morrison finally gives all former slaves, "disremembered and unaccounted for", a voice. Beloved tries her hardest to become a real person throughout the novel, but she simply remains the ghost of a baby, one who "crouches" in the fetal position and who needs an "underwater face". Her identity is blurred, half-developed, and soon deliberately forgotten by all the people she once knew.

Since her mother warns her from being a slut she tells her about a medicine that would ‘throw away a child before it even becomes a child”(Kincaid, 470) which suggests that the mother did not trust her daughter and feared that she would become a ‘slut’ despite the constant warnings. “You are not a boy” (Kincaid, 470) perfectly sums up the entire story because this one sentence summarizes all the warnings and advice the mother was giving her daughter.
