Why is this chapter-even though it recounts Sethe's escape from sweet home- largely told from Denver's perspective? (prt1: chp3)

I think that Seth tries very hard to repress her past. It is so tragic and painful that Morrison leaves the story in the articulate hands of Denver. Denver is not far removed from the experience and is able describe the situation without the emotional baggage that Seth still carries around with her.

I don't get it...
