Fortenbery 1 Sam Fortenbery English 2120.103 Toni Morrison Beloved Reading Notes 4/29 1. Stamp Paid wonders whether he should have told Paul D about Sethe and her incident in the barn because he feels he has ruined the one good thing that has happened to Sethe in a long time. He feels he owes it to her to not tell Paul D so that they can go on and live happily ever after. - “Had he stopped the one shot she had of the happiness a good man could bring her? Was she vexed by the loss, the free and unasked-for revival of gossip by the man who had helped her cross the river and who was her friend as well as Baby Suggs’?” (199) 2. Stamp Paid hears loud voices and mumbling when he tries to go and talk with Sethe and comfort her. I think the voices he is hearing are the voices from the past parties that took past at 124. - “Over and over again he tried it: made up his mind to visit Sethe; broke through the loud hasty voices to the mumbling beyond it and stopped, trying to figure out what to do at the door.” (203) 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
