3 Perspectives on a Scene

On a blank sheet of paper that you will hand in, do the following in 1 paragraph EACH:

  • summarize the events from pages 33-42 from Celie’s perspective;
  • summarize those same events from Sophia’s perspective ; and
  • summarize the same events again, from Harpo’s perspective.
  • When writing, try to get at what isn’t said, particularly what motivates the three characters to act the way they do. Title this “The Color Purple, pp. 33-42” and be sure to write the date and period in the corner, and hand it in.
