The Color Purple Information
The Color Purple is an epistolary novel that was written by the American author Alice Walker in 1982. The novel won the National Book Award for Fiction and Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
The story narrated in the novel revolves around the life of African-American women living in the Southern United States in 1930 and complaining about issues regarding their exceedingly low position in American social culture. The book was listed on The Big Read poll of BBC, of the UK’s “best-loved novels.”
The story inside the novel is about a 14 years old girl “Celie” who lived in Southern America in the early 1900s. Her father, whose name was Alphonso, regularly beats and rapes her. She was also impregnated due to Alphonso, as a result of which she gave birth to a baby girl which she named Olivi. But Alphonso took the baby girl away right after her birth, and Celie thought he killed her. With all of these sufferings, Celie writes letters to God due to her father’s abuse.
After some time, Celie’s stepfather Alphonso marry her to Mister, who was seeking a relationship with Nettie (Celie’s younger sister), but he went with Celie as Celie’s step-father played another wicked game again and told Mister that Celie would be a better choice than Nettie. He said Mister that she would come with a cow as well as she is ugly and lies. This made Mister settled for Celie.
The Color Purple was adapted into a film with the title of its original name in 1985. Whoopi Goldberg stars the movie as Celie, Oprah Winfrey as Sofia, and Danny Glover as Albert. Steven Spielberg played his part as a director of the film. Musical Adaptation of the novel opened on December 1, 2005, in New York City at The Broadway Theatre.
The author declined to publish the book in Israel as a part of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement. Mel Watkins of the “New York Times Book Review” gave her review about this book, where she stated that the novel was a striking and consummately well-written piece of writing.
