By Darnell D. Pratt; Louis H. Pratt | Go to book overview

Addendum

Burnett Zaron W. "The Color Purple: Personal Reaction." Catalyst, premiere issue (Fall 1986): 43-44.

Contends that critics are unjustified in questioning Walker's portrayal of Black men because the characters in The Color Purple represent Walker's own unique experiences. Argues that the reader should accept Walker's art for its potentiality for enriching our lives.

Mullen Harryette. "Daughters in Search of Mothers or a Girl Child in a Family of Men." Catalyst, premiere issue (Fall 1986): 45-49.

Rejects the arguments that The Color Purple attacks Black Men and proposes lesbianism as a panacea for Black Women who are brutalized and victimized by their men. Contends that Walker's intention is to condemn the prevailing system of patriarchy and suggest lesbianism as a possibility for facilitating the bonding of women and creating a radical alternative to the existing patriarchal structure.

Wade-Gales Gloria. "Anatomy of An Error: The Color Purple Controversy." Catalyst, premiere issue (Fall 1986): 50- 53.

Examines charges of negative Black male images, incest, and lesbianism which have been made against Walker's novel. Concludes that The Color Purple should be evaluated
