The Bluest Eye's Overall Meaning Of The Book

401 Words2 Pages

1) I believe The Bluest Eye’s overall meaning of the book is beauty. The reason I decided it was beauty is because all through out of The Bluest Eye there is different events where when a character get jealous of one another from the way they look. One event where I can prove the meaning is beauty, is when Pecola wishes for blue eyes. Pecola only wishes for blue eyes to get attention like all the other white girls with blue eyes. Also, because she wanted to beautiful, which leads to how the overall meaning of the book. 2) The most detrimental case is when Pecola was molested by her own father. Which was a sexual embarrassment not just between Pecola but her father as well. Her father got even more embarrassed because of two racist white men.
