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. After the Civil War ends, Sethe longingly recalls the two-year-old daughter whom she killed when threatened with recapture after escaping from slavery 18 years before.… (mehr)

    A Killing in This Town: A Novel von Olympia Vernon (hyacinthony)
    hyacinthony: I was reminded by Morrison's poetic narrative voice at the end of part 2 of Vernon's narrative style. Both books convey a powerful and mysterious spiritual force embedded in the violence of post-slavery african american conditions.

    shaunie: Morrison's masterpiece is a clear influence on Whitehead's book, and his is one of the very few I've read which bears comparison with it. In fact I'd go so far as to say it's also a masterpiece, a stunningly good read!

Beautifully written and heartbreaking story illustrating the trauma of slavery. It blends horror and a ghost story with poetic and literary sensibilities. I'm just sorry I took so long to get around to reading it. ( )

This book is an absolute masterpiece and I'm not sure why I haven't read it sooner. It's rich and powerful to read with the story line swirling around the central events in Sethe's past and how she has been unable to escape them. It's not straightforward and all the characters are flawed and sometimes difficult to understand or like, but it shows how the horror of slavery echoes on even once people are free, and into future generations.

The Backlisted podcast episode on it is excellent. ( )

I read it in a day, spellbound. Beloved is about a slice of history without which today's America cannot be fully understood. It's about the horror of slavery wrapped in the gossamer romance of a ghost story and tied up with a ribbon of redemption. The story comes out as the layers are unwrapped - revealing "rememories" and feelings and colors long hidden and denied expression. It's told in the language of the preliterate, and in the case of the ghost daughter Beloved, preverbal - poetic, disjointed, dreamy, confused. I was touched; and the places it touched in me are still raw. ( )

"Beloved" is Toni Morrison's fifth novel, and another triumph. Indeed, Ms. Morrison's versatility and technical and emotional range appear to know no bounds. If there were any doubts about her stature as a pre-eminent American novelist, of her own or any other generation, ''Beloved'' will put them to rest.
 
As a record of white brutality mitigated by rare acts of decency and compassion, and as a testament to the courageous lives of a tormented people, this novel is a milestone in the chronicling of the black experience in America. It is Morrison writing at the height of her considerable powers, and it should not be missed.

Morrison traces the shifting shapes of suffering and mythic accommodations, through the shell of psychosis to the core of a victim's dark violence, with a lyrical insistence and a clear sense of the time when a beleaguered peoples' "only grace...was the grace they could imagine."

I will never run from another thing on this earth.
Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.
And though she and others lived through and got over it, she could never let it happen to her own. The best things she was, was her children.
Being alive was the hard part.
Nobody stopped playing checkers just because the pieces included her children.
