Also, be aware that although Celie is a good Christian woman, she is absolutely fascinated by the  "evil" that she feels is deeply rooted inside Shug. Shug yells and shouts and curses and is "more evil  than [Celie's] mother," but Celie is not repulsed. She remains fixated on the worldly, wicked, and  wondrous Shug Avery.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
