Abstract

The world of literature can be a medium of expressing the writer's expressions and ideas. Universal topics such as. love. death. and war often become subject matters in the world of literature. In the novel, of The Color Purple, Alice Walker describes the oppression experienced by AfroAmerican wometl in the female characters of Celie. Nettie, Shug Avery. Sofia. and Mary Agnes who faced sexual discrimina!ions in a patriarchal society. Womanhood, education, and lesbianism are factors that help the AfroAmerican women to free themselves from traditional values. The Color Purple puts into words the process of its main character, Celie, who tries to reject and escape from the male domination of her world. The other AfroAmerican women characters that help Celie to find her self­ identity represent the manifestation of the rejection of the traditional values. This article. which uses the socia-histotical and feminism approach, is intended to analyse the Afro-American women s rejection of traditional values byfocusing on the major character of' Walkers The Color Purple, Celie, as she develops from being a victim of traditional values to the rejoiceful discovery of her selfidentit),.
