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

Toni Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. She was the author of many novels, including

There is no better writer than Toni Morrison in her peak

There is a general consensus that "Beloved" is Toni Morrison's greatest work.

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!

A wonderful piece of work that touches the heart

Sie erfüllt in diesem Roman die Anforderungen an ein Buch, das die vergessenen Erinnerungen der (schwarzen) Amerikaner in das Bewußtsein der Leser zurückrufen soll. Sie schreibt die Geschichte einer Frau und Mutter, die in der kollektiven Erinnerung als Kindsmörderin vergessen oder missverstanden worden wäre, um die tiefgründige Verzweiflung einer Wahl zwischen Tötung des eigenen Kindes und dessen Auslieferung in die Sklaverei zu (be-)schreiben. Der Roman ermöglicht einer Neu-Erinnerung, da er erzählend auf Erinnerungselemente vieler Amerikaner zurückgreift. Morrison schreibt schwarze Geschichte(n) neu und verdichtet sie in einem begeisternden Roman, der nicht nur in der Figur des Geists der Tochter alte Gespenster auferstehen läßt. Brilliant!
