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

Despite being raised in a religion and culture that forbids secular music, John has always heard music where others simply hear sound. Entirely self-taught, John composes music that he hides from the world; music that has never been played out loud but exists only inside his mind. Then one day while working in the cornfield, John hears beautiful music coming from a nearby farmhouse. Entranced, he walks towards the music and through an open window sees a beautiful, young lady playing the piano. This chance encounter awakens within his heart the desire to hear his own music played. John places one of his compositions in an envelope along with a note and slides it under the door of the pianist. After a life of glamour, travel and music, acclaimed concert pianist, Elise finds herself facing a personal crisis entirely alone. Needing a quiet, peaceful place to recover and heal, Elise abandons her cosmopolitan life and retreats to the Indiana farmhouse she inherited from her grandparents. Broken-hearted and ill, Elise’s days seem to be filled with darkness and depression until she receives a note and sheet music from a stranger. Intrigued, she plays the composition and finds it to be unique, unorthodox and beautiful. Because the music brings joy into her previously dark days, Elise writes a note in response and leaves it on her doorstep hoping the mysterious person will return and find it. Thus, begins a journey that will take both John and Elise down a path that neither expected to walk. In the days ahead, they will face moral and spiritual dilemmas and will have to answer the question: will they follow God’s plan for their lives no matter how high the cost may be? Come: follow John and Elise on a musical journey that will either bring them the greatest heartache they have ever known or the greatest joy.

With the continued expansion of the literary canon, multicultural works of modern literary fiction and autobiography have assumed an increasing importance for students and scholars of American literature. This exciting new series assembles key documents and criticism concerning these works that have so recently become central components of the American literature curriculum. Each casebook will reprint documents relating to the work's historical context and reception, present the best in critical essays, and when possible, feature an interview of the author. The series will provide, for the first time, an accessible forum in which readers can come to a fuller understanding of these contemporary masterpieces and the unique aspects of American ethnic, racial, or cultural experience that they so ably portray. This casebook to Morrison's classic novel presents seven essays that represent the best in contemporary criticism of the book. In addition, the book includes a poem and an abolitionist's tract published after a slave named Margaret Garner killed her child to save her from slavery--the very incident Morrison fictionalizes in Beloved.
