Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Novelist Toni Morrison's reputation, already high, moved to an even loftier peg with the publication of her most recent novel, Beloved (Booklist 83:1627 Jl 87). This gathering of critical essays is at once impressive and hospitable-characteristics of Morrison's own work as well. Basically, the contributors of these pieces react to Morrison as a black novelist, as a female novelist, or as a practitioner of the novel form, period-black and female or otherwise. All of them are interested in how Morrison has stretched the boundaries of these three categories. Points are made, counterpoints offered; her works are examined and cross-examined. But the bottom line is that, in reading Morrison, critics and general audiences alike experience the sheer pleasure of hearing all the resonances of a voice beautiful and powerful.
