The color purple Author: Alice Walker Publisher: New York: Open Road Integrated Media, English View all editions and formats Summary: Celie has grown up in s rural Georgia, navigating a childhood of ceaseless abuse. Not only is she poor and despised by the society around her, she's badly treated by her family.
As a teenager she begins writing letters directly to God in an attempt to transcend a life that often seems too much to bear. She too young. Don't know nothing but what you tell her. Sides, I want her to git some more schooling. Make a schoolteacher out of her. But I can let you have Celie. She the oldest anyway.
She ought to marry first. She ain't fresh tho, but I spect you know that. She spoiled. But you don't need a fresh woman no how. I got a fresh one in there myself and she sick all the time. He spit, over the railing. The children git on her nerve, she not much of a cook. And she big already. I stop crying I'm so surprise. She ugly. He say.
But she ain't no stranger to hard work. And she clean. And God done fixed her. You can do everything just like you want to and she ain't gonna make you feed it or clothe it.
I take out the picture of Shug Avery. I look into her eyes. Her eyes say Yeah, it bees that way sometime. Fact is, he say, I got to git rid of her. She too old to be living here at home. And she a bad influence on my other girls. She'd come with her own linen. She can take that cow she raise down there back of the crib. But Nettie you flat out can't have. Not now. Not never. Clearing his throat. I ain't never really look at that one, he say. Well, next time you come you can look at her.
Don't even look like she kin to Nettie. But she'll make the better wife. She ain't smart either, and I'll just be fair, you have to watch her or she'll give away everything you own. But she can work like a man. He say, She near twenty. And another thing-She tell lies.
All I thought about was Nettie. How she could come to me if I marry him and he be so love struck with her I could figure out a way for us to run away. Us both be hitting Nettie's schoolbooks pretty hard, cause us know we got to be smart to git away. I know I'm not as pretty or as smart as Nettie, but she say I ain't dumb.
The way you know who discover America, Nettie say, is think bout cucumbers. That what Columbus sound like. I learned all about Columbus in first grade, but look like he the first thing I forgot. She say Columbus come here in boats call the Neater, the Peter, and the Santomareater. Indians so nice to him he force a bunch of 'em back home with him to wait on the queen.
But it hard to think with gitting married to Mr. The first time I got big Pa took me out of school. He never care that I love it. Nettie stood there at the gate holding tight to my hand.
I was all dress for first day. You too dumb to keep going to school, Pa say.
Nettie the clever one in this bunch. But Pa, Nettie say, crying, Celie smart too. Even Miss Beasley say so. Nettie dote on Miss Beasley.
Think nobody like her in the world. Pa say, Whoever listen to anything Addie Beasley have to say. She run off at the mouth so much no man would have her. That how come she have to teach school.
He never look up from cleaning his gun. Pretty soon a bunch of white mens come walking cross the yard. They have guns too. Pa git up and follow 'em. The rest of the week I vomit and dress wild game. But Nettie never give up. Next thing I know Miss Beasley at our house trying to talk to Pa.
She say long as she been a teacher she never know nobody want to learn bad as Nettie and me. But when Pa call me out and she see how tight my dress is, she stop talking and go. Nettie still don't understand. I don't neither. All us notice is I'm all the time sick and fat. I feel bad sometime Nettie done pass me in learnin. But look like nothing she say can git in my brain and stay. She try to tell me something bout the ground not being flat.
I just say, Yeah, like I know it. I never tell her how flat it look to me. The woman he had helping him done quit. His mammy done said No More. He say, Let me see her again. Pa call me. Celie, he say. Like it wasn't nothing. I go stand in the door.
The sun shine in my eyes. He's still up on his horse. He look me up and down. Pa rattle his newspaper. Move up, he won't bite, he say. I go closer to the steps, but not too close cause I'm a little scared of his horse.
Turn round, Pa say. I turn round. Celie is the protagonist of the I read The Colour Purple in my early teens, was traumatized by the graphic abuse portrayed, and vowed to never read it again I was curious about why so many of my GR friends rated it so highly and was eventually convinced to give it another go.
Celie is the protagonist of the tale Her story is told through a series of letters written firstly to God, and then to her sist Wow I mean Really Wow. You know how there are some books and their words wrap around you like a comforting blanket WellThis Is Not One. The Color Purple rips the clothes right off of your sk I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don t notice it 4. The main character s life is miserable I still don t understand how she made it through to a certain point, because if it were me iI think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don t notice it 4.
