Synopsis:

Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.


Review:

"Ms. Morrison's versatility and technical and emotional range appear to know no bounds....'Beloved' is written in an antiminimalist prose that is by turns rich, graceful, eccentric, rough, lyrical, sinuous, colloquial and very much to the point....In this book, the other world exists and magic works, and the prose is up to it. If you can believe page one--and Ms. Morrison's verbal authority compels belief--you're hooked on the rest of the book."

Margaret Atwood, New York Times Book Review, 09/13/1987

Review:

"I carried it around like it was the Bible while I was shooting the film and prior to that I had read it twice. Her writing is such that you can't take it all in the first time. You have to spoon-feed it to yourself. I can read Toni Morrison's work over and over again and find something new every time."

Oprah Winfrey, New York Times, 12/06/1997
