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. Filledwith bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

    Мощная, страшная, безумная и красиво исполненная книга! Не пожалела, что прочла именно в оригинале - очень многое в этот роман привносит сам язык.

    They were not holding hands, but their shadows were.

    THERE IS a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up; holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship's, smooths and contains the rocker. It's an inside kind--wrapped tight like skin.
    Then there is a loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down.
    It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one's own feet going seem to come from a far-off place.

    Suddenly he remembers Sixo trying to describe what he felt about the Thirty-Mile Woman. "She is a friend of my mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It's good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind."
