care. Simple, naive in the extreme, but sincere and very optimistic. Some of this affluence comes also to Mary Anne, and eventually to Celie when she begins her dressmaking business. Her changing perceptions of God are completed by Shug Avery's unconventional interpretations of God and His purpose. In the character of Eleanor Jane, Alice Walker manages to show that it is possible for black and white to mend relationships and begin to understand and accept one another.

San Francisco Chronicle, a novel of permanent importance. She is able to stop him from beating Celie; she gets Nettie's letters back and eventually she is able to effect a slight reconciliation, after Celie leaves him to go away with Shug. Mary Agnes is raped by the white uncle whom she approaches for help to get Sofia out of prison and Mr (Albert) also tries to force Nettie to submit to him before she leaves the house after fighting him off.

The Prince Hamlet Character, The Color Of Water - About Ruth,

Women are exploited very seriously, especially Celie, who is married off to Albert to look after his children and is expected to work on the farm and submit without objection to all of Albert's demands and those of the children. Shug Avery is a successful blues singer with a life of comparative luxury, able to travel and earn money. Samuel is tolerant, wise and sensitive, he regrets deeply his failure to influence the Olinkas and Nettie, in comforting him, wins his affection and devotion after many years of blameless admiration. Most of the characters live in sub standard housing, segregated from the white population. Paradoxically, Corinne, Samuel and Nettie are alien outsiders among their own original people. She takes charge of her life and in doing so manages to achieve in middle age a dominant role with property, a home and money to offer her sister and her children when they come home from Africa. She makes the mistake of "looking like somebody" - driving in a car, an unusual thing in those days for anyone, let alone a black woman and replying to the mayor's wife's offer of menial work with a "Hell, no" The beating she receives. New York Times Book Review, places Walker in the company of Faulkner. Mary Agnes endures rape for Sofia's sake in order to get her released from prison, and when Mary Agnes goes off to be a singer it is Sofia who looks after her child. When Mary Agnes dresses up to visit her uncle to try to get Sofia released from prison, she looks "like she a white woman, only her clothes patch." There is obviously a huge inequality in terms of education. Between acts, Celie blossoms into a successful designer, even though we've never seen her sew so much as a baby blanket during her previous life of horrors. Like Celie she has a strong sense of duty and a devotion to her family.
