“Trauma” is one of the important themes in Morrison’s novels. In recent years, some critics use trauma theory to interpret Morrison’s works, and combine her identity as a black female writer with feminist critical theory to analyze the black women’s trauma in her works. This paper breaks through the limitation of interpreting Morrison’s works from the perspective of feminism and racism, and it analyzes the color metaphor in the text based on the trauma theory. In addition, Morrison’s novels describing the traumatic experience of black children are selected as the research objects in an attempt to show the unspeakable traumatic experience of black children in different historical periods.
