The present paper deals with the ghost in the house 124, in the Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. The Beloved is sometimes mislabeled as a ghost story by critics. This article, on the other hand, is about Sethe’s daughter’s ‘Personified Spirit’. Beloved is not a ghost story, as this article demonstrates. In African-American literature, it also discovered a spiritual and oral legacy.
