In this scene, The Master's horrible death is heard by and reflected in the reactions of his wife, Elizabeth (his wife's Mammy), and the 7th Great Grandmother, whom he raped when she was 13 and who is the mother of his favorite child.
The Blue Lady, a “ghost” who is the protagonist of this story, is the ghost of a slavewoman beaten slowly to death by her husband, a rape-begotten mulatto son of The Master. Because the boy was his father’s favorite – and because of all the reasons that people don’t intervene in domestic abuse situations – noone intervened or tried in any way to stop the beatings. Because of the lack of acknowledgment of her horrible plight, the ghost haunts the family, passed down through 10 generations.
