Beloved : a novel (eBook, ) [ukraine-europe.info]
A brutally powerful, mesmerizing story At the center of Toni Morrison's fifth novel, which earned her the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is an almost unspeakable act of horror and heroism: The woman is Sethe, and the novel traces her journey from slavery to freedom during and immediately following the Civil War.
Woven into this circular, mesmerizing narrative are the horrible truths of Sethe's past: Just as Sethe finds the past too painful to remember, and the future just "a matter of keeping the past at bay," her story is almost too painful to read.
Yet Morrison manages to imbue the wreckage of her characters' lives with compassion, humanity, and humor. Part ghost story, part history lesson, part folk tale, Beloved finds beauty in the unbearable, and lets us all see the enduring promise of hope that lies in anyones future.

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. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.
Sethe was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has borne the unthinkable and not gone mad, yet she is still held captive by memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. Sethe works at beating back the past, but it makes itself heard and felt incessantly in her memory and in the lives of those around her.
Beloved : a novel
Book Jacket Status: It is the story—set in post-Civil War Ohio—of Sethe, an escaped slave who has risked death in order to wrench herself from a living death; who has lost a husband and buried a child; who has borne the unthinkable and not gone mad: Sethe works at "beating back the past," but it is alive in all of them. It keeps Denver fearful of straying from the house.
Women saw him and wanted to weep" , one of her fellow slaves on the farm where she had once been kept…in the vivid and painfully cathartic stories she and Paul D tell each other of their years in captivity, of their glimpses of freedom…and, most powerfully, in the apparition of Beloved, whose eyes are expressionless at their deepest point, whose doomed childhood belongs to the hideous logic of slavery and who, as daughter, sister and seductress, has now come from the "place over there" to claim retribution for what she lost and for what was taken from her.
But its intensity and resonance of feeling, and the boldness of its narrative, lift it beyond its particulars so that it speaks to our experience as an entire nation with a past of both abominable and ennobling circumstance.
