"The Color Purple": Writing to Undo What Writing Has Done.
Phylon, v47 n2 p107-16 Jun 1986
"The Color Purple" is not only a novel in which black women make an inhospitable male environment amenable to their growth and development, it is also an epistolary novel in which black women take a form traditionally inhospitable to oral cultures, the written word, and makes it responsive to their needs.
