Beloved

Heftet / 1999 / Engelsk
It is the mid-1800s. At Sweet Home in Kentuckhy, an era is ending as slavery comes under attack from the abolitionists. The worlds of Halle and Paul D. are to be destroyed in a cataclysm of torment and agony. The world of Sethe, however, is to turn from one of love to one of violence and death - the death of Sethe's baby daughter Beloved, whose name is the single word on the tombstone, who died at her mother's hands, and who will return to claim retribution.**One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**

'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''I adored her honesty. I admired the way she occupied her space in the world. I believed her''[Toni Morrison] led and we followed, and she showed us the beauty of the language, and the power that was unleashed when that beauty was allied to a great heart and a ferocious mind''No other writer in my lifetime, or perhaps ever, has married so completely an understanding of the structures of power with knowledge of the human heart''Toni Morrison is the greatest chronicler of the American experience that we have ever known'
