Author(s): Toni Morrison

Vintage Classics

Una sensacional historia de la esclavitud y el racismo en Estados Unidos.


 


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 ni a que desde su nacimiento se aliment de leche mezclada con sangre, y poco a poco fue perdiendo contacto con la realidad por la voluntad de un cari o demasiado denso. Una experiencia: el crimen como nica arma contra el dolor ajeno, el amor como nica justificaci n ante el delito, y la muerte como parad jica salvaci n ante una vida destinada a la esclavitud.


 


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION


 


New York Times Bestseller


 


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.


 


"You can't go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Sula, everything else -- they're transcendent, all of them. You'll be glad you read them."--Barack Obama
