Although the main characters lack self-confidence early on, through the guidance of a potent mentor, they are able to develop into empowered women. Initially, both Celie and Evelyn exemplify the archetypal character of the oppressed by their unwillingness of speaking up for themselves. As a result, both Celie and Evelyn struggle to perceive themselves as actual human beings but instead view themselves as objects. This comprehension authorizes the oppressive characters to inflict further agony.
Celie is pulled out of school, beaten, raped, and forced into marriage at an extremely young age. All of these sacrifices kept Nettie safe and educated, but hurt Celie, who only thought of her sister and not of herself. Firstly, Celie sacrifices her childhood to keep
She states that “I don’t write to god no more, I write to you.” to Nettie in letter seventy-three shortly after. This is a significant turn in Celie’s spiritual journey as she abandons God – which she deemed unhelping and unresponsive, in favor of her sister who has always been there for her as a source of comfort to her from the beginning. Celie began to turn away from religion and begins to search the spaces of spirituality in her life, which are namely Shug and Nettie. When Shug describes her journey from religious to spiritual and how she discovered her spiritual state became the ultimate turning point in Celie’s development away from stiffly structured religion.
In the movie however it doesn't show how close the girls become, and how strong their bond is. One of the main points Shug´s character puts across is how she teaches Celie about herself, like the reader could see Nettie trying to do in the beginning of the story. In the book one of the most important things celie is able to do is stand up for herself, she is able to do this with the guidance and support given to her by shug. In the movie one can only assume Celie finds her strength over time given all the abuse she endures in her childhood, and
There’s rape, death, and many other aspects covered in the book. In this first page, readers are immediately met with a rape scene. While this is shocking to many, Celie recovers and gets through it. She was born with all odds against her, but she is a strong and selfless woman. Celie becomes prosperous and content, and the book executes a joyful end that is satisfying.
Have you ever watched "the Red Hearts" commercial? This is a commercial produced by Ben Lifson on November 24th 2013 that tries to convince people to purchase some form of health insurance. In the commercial, we watch people living as normal circumstances, and accidents might happen and do happen unexpectedly. Then, by using rhetorical situation, the commercial explains why people need to be insured to protect themselves and the people around them by using emotional functions effectively. According to his essay, Grant-Davie explains that the rhetoric situation is a discourse of a single subject by "several rhetors and audiences" (Grant-Davie 350). Rhetorical situations are also divided into three elements: rhetors, audiences, and constraints.
It aims at building up a new ground for expressing female voice. The text is in complete conversational format rather than being a narration of events. Through her letters, Celie tells her audience something that they already know. She primarily subverts, deconstructs and eventually reconstructs the mainstream patriarchal discourse that has kept her and many of her kind at the periphery. The letters create a productive space where the hitherto oppressed voices are finally heard.
In this passage, Charlotte Perkins Gilman highlights the theme that women must use their intellect or go mad through the use of literary qualities and writing styles. Gilman also uses the use of capital letters to portray the decline in the narrators’ sanity. This shows the decline in the sanity of a person because the words in all-caps is shown as abrupt, loud remarks. Gilman uses this method multiple times in her short story and this method was used twice in this passage. When the narrator wrote, “LOOKING AT THE PAPER!”, the major decline in her mental health was shown. Before this remark, the narrator only would put one to two words maximum in all capital letters. This remark has the total of four words which if a big jump from one
Every situation that occurs between each character ends up the contradictory of what was meant to happen. The language in this story is strong from each characters dialogue as the diction indicates the social status in society and situations that occur that makes their voices stand out for themselves. For example, when Sofia fought with the Mayor’s wife as she wanted her to be her personal maid she would say, “hell no” to her in which she later ended up in prison.

Actions are another source base historians use to determine meaning. What actions mean in the greater societal, or personal struggle gives greater understanding oh how that greater societal structure affected the individual. Kali Gross utilizes this method in her book Colored Amazons. She interprets the meaning behind what black female crime in 19th-century Philadelphia meant in the greater context of black female womanhood. She does so with court documents and newspaper articles concerning these female criminals. Of course, these documents are biased, but Kali contends with that. The fact is what these women did and the language society expressed those crimes through have deep meaning: why specific words were chosen over others and such.
