Review:

Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison is one of the leading novelists in the United States. Her work--from The Bluest Eye to Song of Solomon to Jazz--is noted for its vivid imagery and powerful subjects. Her best-known work, though, is Beloved, which was made into a feature film directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Oprah Winfrey. Beloved is the stark tale of a mother who makes a terrible decision rather than see her baby daughter suffer through slavery. In this 52-minute profile, Morrison discusses the inspiration behind her novel (which is based on a true story) as well as the imagery, characters, and language of the work. Interspersed with the interview are dramatic readings from Beloved; images of the time of slavery reinforce the discussion. This video is excellent background for both the novel and the movie, and it adds another dimension to Morrison's work. --Jenny Brown
