Beschreibung

Discover Toni Morrison’s most iconic work in this Pulitzer-prize winning novel that exemplifies her powerful and important place in contemporary American literature.

‘An American masterpiece’ AS Byatt


It is the mid-1800s and as slavery looks to be coming to an end, Sethe is haunted by the violent trauma it wrought on her former enslaved life at Sweet Home, Kentucky. Her dead baby daughter, whose tombstone bears the single word, Beloved, returns as a spectre to punish her mother, but also to elicit her love. Told with heart-stopping clarity, melding horror and beauty, Beloved is Toni Morrison’s enduring masterpiece.

‘Toni Morrison was a giant of her times and ours…“Beloved,” is a heartbreaking testimony to the ongoing ravages of slavery, and should be read by all’ Margaret Atwood, New York Times

‘The literary titan we must never stop learning from’ Metro


Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction


**One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**

"[Beloved] has left the realm of fiction and become a force of nature" Guardian

There is no better writer than Toni Morrison in her peak

Ingbert Edenhofer, Thalia-Buchhandlung Essen

There is a general consensus that "Beloved" is Toni Morrison's greatest work. "The Bluest Eye" might have caught me more unprepared, as it was my first encounter with her style that constantly pulls the rug out from under the characters' and the readers' feet, but "Beloved" is an unforgettable read - even after more than a decade much of it was still very vivid in my memory. Toni Morrison has the ability to put fortune and misfortune so close to each other that it is impossible to just feel one of the two. Thus, the ultimate human connection concurrently turns into a catastrophe that infinitely connects a mother with her two daughters. Anyone looking for nuanced literature will find it here!

It`s an easy read with a very emotional setting even if the story and the message is nothing I've never read before.

While reading and crying..

This book teaches you how cruel and short life can be while at the same moment it’s the greatest Adventure ever. It makes you think about the reasons why we’re not always thankful for everyday and makes us do that!
