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.… (mais)

Pormenores da obra

Beloved por Toni Morrison

  1. 101
    Kindred por Octavia E. Butler (susanbooks)
  2. 41
    Their Eyes Were Watching God por Zora Neale Hurston (BookshelfMonstrosity)
  3. 41
    The Known World por Edward P. Jones (BookshelfMonstrosity)
  4. 20
    A Killing in This Town por 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.
  5. 31
    Cane por Jean Toomer (cammykitty)
    cammykitty: An often overlooked classic.
  6. 20
    A Visitation of Spirits por Randall Kenan (lottpoet)
  7. 21
    Mojo: Conjure Stories por Nalo Hopkinson (cammykitty)
    cammykitty: This collection of short stories is nowhere near as dark as Beloved, but it's worth following these tales to the crossroads.
  8. 10
    Bailey's Cafe por Gloria Naylor (PrincessPaulina)
  9. 11
    The Underground Railroad por Colson Whitehead (shaunie)
    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!
  10. 22
    The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman por Ernest J. Gaines (karmiel)
    karmiel: Both books include a strong woman who attempts to build her life as a free woman after escaping/exiting slavery.
  11. 11
    Philida por André Brink (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: The true meaning of freedom, the price of freedom, cruel things people do in the name of love and cruel acts performed without love are the focus of these books.

I really don't know what to make of this book. I finished it. I think I liked it, but... Yeah. Sure was a ride, and I'm going to have to go back and watch John Green's crash course video about this one to help me process, I think. ( )

This was certainly an interesting read. I read it for one of my classes at school and while it's definitely not something I would normally read it wasn't bad either. I'm still dipping my toes into the literary fiction type of books because generally the books I read for pleasure fall more into the genre fiction category. This is a Pulitzer Prize winning book and I can see why. While it certainly isn't my favorite book it has a lot of storytelling merit. I have never been the best at picking up on things like subtext and themes and metaphors in books ( it's one of the reasons I have a hard time with poetry) so this book wasn't the most enjoyable thing for me to read at times. As this book deals with slavery some of the scenes can be very intense and visceral but I think it's done in a way that's very tactful and well done and adds to the story and is definitely not just for shock value but is definitely quite shocking. I would say I would recommend this book even though it wasn't a favorite because it think it will definitely add to your literary knowledge and I think you will absolutely get something out of a read of this even if some parts leave you befuddled.

Sethe and her daughter, Denver, live in a house haunted by Sethe's baby girl who died 18 years ago. When Paul D, a man who was enslaved with Sethe, arrives and shakes up the house, they think the haunting may be over but then a young woman appears from nowhere, calling herself after the one word inscribed on the baby's stone: Beloved.

This is an intricate, challenging, beautiful, and heartbreaking exploration of the legacy of slavery in the lives of one family and their community. Whether Beloved is really the ghost is left open for debate, but her presence ultimately changes Sethe and Denver as they grapple with the past. A deserved Pulitzer Prize winner, and just as worth reading now as when it was published in 1987. Its complexity rewards the rereader. ( )

My first Morrison. Terrific!
Don't wait, get this book and read it. Life is short. ( )

This novel tells the tale of slavery, freedom, sacrifice, redemption, and love. Sethe, the central character, must be one of the most complex and interesting women in American literature. Living with the past heavy on her shoulders, and a ghost haunting her house, she still manages to explore love and stand tall with pride (maybe too much?) The supporting characters, both past and present, are also well developed and easy to empathize with.

Morrison's writing style, while not exactly easy to read, is captivating, inventive, and brings the right sense of foreboding and fantasy to the tale. I am not a fan of magical realism but this novel couldn't exist without it. ( )

"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.

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.
