Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is the story of Celie, a poor, black woman who overcomes a life of abuse due to the support of the females in her life. Walker, an advocate for African-American feminism, created a novel with a strong community of black women that has resonated with readers of both genders and all backgrounds. This completely updated edition offers a fresh compilation of important current criticism on the unforgettable characters and powerful themes in Walker's classic work. Alice Walker's The Color Purple, New Edition also features a chronology of the author's life and notes on the contributors, making it a great choice for libraries looking to enhance their collection of thoughtful and accessible literary criticism.
