"Beloved" won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1987, which led up to Toni Morrison's winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1993 and is the most-often taught novel by Morrison. It is a rich text, as well as a difficult one, in need of a student guide that can help undergraduates not only to understand the story but to develop sophisticated skills of critical analysis. Students who grapple successfully with "Beloved's" characters will also gain valuable insight into the major themes of the novel, Morrison's intricate narrative strategies, African American history and culture, and theories useful for interpreting literature.Character Studies aims to promote sophisticated literary analysis through the concept of character. It demonstrates the necessity of linking character analysis to texts' themes, issues and ideas, and encourages students to embrace the complexity of literary characters and the texts in which they appear. The series thus fosters close critical reading and evidence-based discussion, as well as an engagement with historical context, and with literary criticism and theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Nancy J. Peterson adroitly guides us through the twenty years of scholarship that "Beloved", one of the most read and written about novels in the history of American literature, has attracted. She engages anew with the novel's historical depth and, often underestimated, philosophical intensity. Her inspired and inspiring readings of "Beloved "from a variety of important critical perspectives persistently demonstrate how and why this novel changed the nature of African American discourse.'
Linden Peach, Professor of English, Edge Hill University, UK.
