One comment on “No One Could See Them Fall

  1. I agree, I think the fact that the three women are alone is significant in the sense that it allows them to create thier own reality in which Sethe, Denver and ‘Beloved’ can act out thier parts without interference from the world around them. The skepticism of Paul D and the townspeople cant touch them while they are on the ice.
    I also think the fragility of the ice is something to focus on. It’s as though the women are suspended on this thin surface between what is real and what they want to be real, and each move they make (on the ice and in the novel) needs to be carefully placed to keep thier suspended reality alive.
