Inside this book
Toni Morrison’s Beloved is one of the most successful novels of all time, selling millions of copies internationally and inspiring critical commentary from scholars of the highest distinction. Its influence is such that it is studied by students of literature around the world and is often cited as one of the most significant books of modern times. However, its popularity belies its difficulty: many find the novel hard to read, struggling with its structure and occasionally fragmented style. This guide is designed to help readers engage with this complex book and achieve a deeper understanding of its context, the literary strategies it employs, and the various ways in which it has been interpreted since its publication in 1987.
The book has been seen as both modernist and postmodernist in its form and philosophy. Its disorientating narrative strategy is occasionally reminiscent of those modernist writers who stress the fragmented nature of experience, while its subversive approach to history asserts a fictional past that is characteristically postmodern. At the same time Beloved can also be seen as a work of scrupulous realism, painstakingly researched; and while it is occasionally described as magic realist, the author is careful to offer a non-supernatural explanation for the appearance of her otherworldly eponymous character. Such issues have preoccupied critics since the novel was published and this guide addresses them, showing how they relate to the text’s primary themes of racism, motherhood, language, and history’s bearing on the present. Morrison’s African American heritage is central to this and informs the book’s representation of the world at every level.
