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.
Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don’t seem to come close to explaining her
[A] 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
Margaret Atwood, New York Times Book Review
She melds horror and beauty in a story that will disturb the mind forever
A magnificent achievement... An American masterpiece
A. S. Byatt, Guardian
Morrison masterfully uses this novel, a facade of horror and tragedy to actually show ones's struggle for identity and the disappointing life which freed slaves lived in the US. The post-modernism is deeply insightful into the twisted psyche of the characters and the horrors which haunt them.
