Beloved : a novel by Toni Morrison( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in Swedish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After Paul D. finds his old slave friend Sethe in Ohio and moves in with her and her daughter Denver, a strange girl comes along by the name of "Beloved." Sethe and Denver take her in and then strange things begin to happen. Set in rural Ohio several years after the Civil War, this profoundly affecting chronicle of slavery and its aftermath is Toni Morrison's greatest novel, a dazzling achievement, and the most spellbinding reading experience of the decade. A brutally powerful, mesmerizing story ... read it and tremble. At the center of Toni Morrison's fifth novel, which earned her the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is an almost unspeakable act of horror and heroism: a woman brutally kills her infant daughter rather than allow her to be enslaved. 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: the incredible cruelties she endured as a slave, and the hardships she suffered in her journey north to freedom. 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

Paradis by Toni Morrison( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in Swedish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Premier roman de l'auteure depuis l'obtention du prix Nobel. Elle y décrit l'évolution d'une communauté afro-américaine repliée sur elle-même depuis l'abolition de l'esclavage, Ruby, qui est confrontée à la modernité à travers la guerre du Viêt-nam. Un fait divers sanglant, le meurtre d'un groupe de femmes retirées dans un ancien couvent, sert de point de départ et de noeud focal à un récit éclaté, au ton faulknérien, qui aborde les thèmes de la pureté raciale, de l'utopie et du féminisme. Un livre puissant et âpre, au propos dérangeant, d'un accès difficile
