Beloved is a 1987 novel by the American writer Toni Morrison

Beloved is a 1987 novel by the American writer Toni Morrison. Set after the American Civil War (1861–65), it is inspired by the life of Margaret Garner, an African American who escaped slavery in Kentucky in late January 1856 by crossing the Ohio River to Ohio, a free state. Captured, she killed her child rather than have her taken back into slavery.

Beloved Toni Morrison. Your voice sounds loud and clear through the fog of political thought

Much has been written about this book that tells more of Sethe’s story, more of Baby Suggs’s story, more about Denver’s story and more about Paul D’s story and of course Beloved’s. I’m not going to do that here because it’s Toni Morrison’s story to tell and I recommend that you discover it yourself. Beloved Toni Morrison. Your voice sounds loud and clear through the fog of political thought. Your characters live and breathe and DO NOT ALLOW FOR simplistic explanations.

She had not thought to ask him and it bothered her still that it might have been possible-that for twenty minutes, a half hour, say, she could have had the whole thing, every word she heard the preacher say at the funeral (and all there was to say, surely) engraved on her baby’s headstone: Dearly.

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

Una madre: Sethe, la esclava que mata a su propia hija para salvarla del horror, para que la indignidad del presente no tenga futuro posible. Una hija: Beloved, la nina que desde su nacimiento se alimento de leche mezclada con sangre, y poco a poco fue perdiendo contacto con la realidad por la voluntad de un carino demasiado denso. Una experiencia: el crimen como unica arma contra el dolor ajeno, el amor como unica justificacion ante el delito y la muerte como paradojica salvacion ante una vida destinada a la esclavitud. Con este dolor y este amor en apariencia indecibles, la ganadora del Premio Nobel de Literatura 1993 ha construido una soberbia novela, que en 1988 le valio el Premio Pulitzer.
Comments to eBook Beloved (Spanish Edition)

I picked up this book because I wanted to get some perspective after the recent killings of unarmed black men by police officers. As a middle aged white guy, it was hard for me to put wrap my head around the pain and the anger felt by the residents of Ferguson, by the residents of New York. I have friends that are cops. My Facebook wall filled with persuasive arguments in defense of the police actions. But I saw the video of Eric Garner. I followed the news about Michael Brown. Still, I sympathized with the officers, which I knew in my heart was wrong. I wanted to understand how black people in this country experience life, and starting with the shameful history of slavery seemed like a good start.

Beloved is a truly great book that lives up to the hype. Hard to put down. The writing is excellent. The story is not one of suffering, but one of persevering through the insufferable. It's often hard to read, with the unflinching descriptions of torture and degradation. However, I'm a tiny bit closer to understanding.

Toni Morrison's writing isn't "great". It is mind blowing.

This book reads almost like poetry. It's a really, really, really heavy story- a woman escapes slavery with her four young children, only to reach freedom in Ohio right about the time the Fugitive Act was enacted. Her former owner comes for her and her children, and she makes a desperate decision to take her children's lives, rather than have them live enslaved.

As time goes on, the ghost of the daughter she killed haunts their house and makes trouble in her life. She and her living daughter, Denver, try to summon the ghost, and a few weeks later a mysterious young woman shows up and basically moves in with them.

Highly recommended- take your time and read this one bunch of times. It can be really painful. But it is beautifully written and important to read.

If you aren't an Oprah fan, just push her association with the novel and film out of your mind. Buy this book or at least get it from the library. So much praise has been written already that there's little I can add, other than to say the novel merits its reputation. The general story (no spoilers here, don't worry) concerns the life of an escaped slave. But the novel explores not just events, but the way we perceive events, through memory, dream like states, hallucinations, how we relate to our dead and or how they may be relating to us. You've had events in your own life that you've thought about from different angles...events so complex that they never seem to be 100% resolved....different people have different perspectives on those events...even you, maybe, felt differently about it at times. This novel feels very like that; powerful, life changing events being difficult to pin down. Its shocking (nauseating), beautiful, difficult to read at times, difficult to stop reading, difficult to stop thinking about when you've finished. I suppose I'll read it again in 10 years to see if I learn anything new from it.

I feel changed after reading this book. So complex, so painful, so painfully beautiful, such life in the telling of this story. As a Black queer womyn, I have grown tired of the handling slavery narrative. Of the laziness of its use and overuse as a point of reference. But what Morrison does so well is bring life to the complexities of Black life and love in the face of the worst part of American history. I would even go as far to say, it goes beyond the political. It circles down to the smallest particles of her characters' lives and inner self-talk/workings. I don't even know if this review will capture all that I think and feel and see after reading this book.

I purchased this book to increase my number of books read from the PBS Great American Read. I felt that I needed a better score than 33% of the books on the Great 100 list. It is beautiful. I had purchased it previously but was not able to get into if for some reason. I think a better goal instead of increasing my total on the list of the Great American read would just be to read all of Toni Morrison. I'm now two to the good. Absolutely beautiful prose, characters, plot, etc. i did need a break from reading this book it was sometimes too heavy to read straight through.

I am convinced that Toni Morrison is the best writer in the world. My gosh--how can someones soul paint such vivid and emotional characters, era, such real feelings. Not the best place and era to be transported to but Professor Morrison will certainly do it. This book alone put Toni Morrison in a category all by herself... I mean I can go on and on and on and on about her literary style, gifts and etc. If you haven't read this yet it's a must for a realistic escape.

Beloved was a tough book to read, it is composed of flashbacks and memories narrated in no chronological order which makes it hard to understand. After a few pages I almost gave up. But then I realized It would be very interesting to read a renowned novel that contains a poetic examination of slavery. However, I decided to continue reading the book. As I was going through the pages I was getting involved in the story and picturing all the details written by Morrison. I would definitely recommend this book and give 5 stars to this incredible and magical piece of art.
This is a true masterpiece by one of America's premier writers. It is so much more than a ghost story, although it is that too. It is a novel that probes to the very heart of what it means to be human, that explores why the past is never really past, how desperation can lead to both unthinkable acts and the resulting shunning by society. I read this when it first came out and found it difficult and troubling. Now, twenty years later, I found it deeply satisfying. It spoke truth to my heart.
