Synopsis

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

Author Choice

A searing depiction of the psychological effects of slavery, this tells the story of Sethe who is haunted by the ghost of her daughter, Beloved.

Staff Choice

As well as being set in the dark and murky period of abolition Morrison's tale is a descent into the tragic world of Sethe who exudes grief and futility. We find ourselves confronted with an act against a mother’s natural instinct, something so controversial that may leave some uncomfortable. This tale shows us the emotional turmoil and psychological trauma that leads to such a devastating conclusion. - Tomi.
