Silent Survival In Lord Of The Flies

97 Words1 Page
This point in the book in particular infuriates me, and I think it does add to the “silent survival” of Celie and the other women around her. They are constantly criticized, belittled, and taken advantage of but, the continue to do what they need to do to survive and what they know will help those around them. This is another reason I think emotional survival can be such a difficult thing combat. And I feel that with this particular situation staying silent and submissive could have actually helped them get closer to overcoming what they were facing.
