Here, we realize that Celie doesn't write to God about packing her things, or about her wedding  ceremony, or even about moving into a new home. Her opening lines concern violence: "I spend my  wedding day running from the oldest boy." On Celie's wedding day, this twelve-year-old hellion, who  will be her stepson, bashes her in the head with a rock. Celie bandages her head and begins to  function automatically, revealing that she accepts the fact that this chaos and violence will probably  be a pattern throughout the rest of her life. It will be a pattern which she will simply have to cope with. There is nothing "special" about Celie's wedding day until nighttime, when she is dutifully lying  beneath Mr. _______. Then, she unselfishly and lovingly thinks of Nettie's welfare. Now that Nettie  and Celie are separated, they can no longer try to protect one another. Celie's thoughts are of Nettie,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
