vvn Mọt già Toni Morrison Trilogy These three novels by Toni Morrison are linked not by shared characters or setting, but by a set of recurring themes, predominantly the exploration of African-American history from the mid-nineteenth to the late twentieth century. Morrison has stated that the books were intended to be read as a trilogy, but has never officially given the series a name. It is variously referred to as "The Beloved Trilogy", "The Jazz Trilogy", "The Morrison Trilogy" or merely "The Trilogy" by reviewers and critics. Beloved (Toni Morrison Trilogy #1) by Toni Morrison 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 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. Her 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 by Nobel Prize laureate Toni Morrison.
