Journal Two: Identifying Conflict in Two Texts

Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals.

This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal entry is designed to help you document ideas about conflicts in literature, which will contribute to the information required for the Week Three Draft and the Week Five Literary Analysis. Recognizing conflict is essential to understanding the various commentaries literature can provide. 

In Journal One, you identified conflict as it might appear in our everyday world and from other sources. Now, consider the following definition of conflict and ...view middle of the document...

For example, the conflict Individual versus Individual, and Individual versus Self appear when the reverent of the church does confront the main character, the Elder African-American Lady and tells her that this is not her church --- does he say this as a member of a society that has declared black people a fifth of a man, slavery condoned by God and government --- or in fact as an individual accountable to God and himself after all? The same goes for the little usher, and the ladies of the church. I would argue that in the final analysis each had their own weight to carry in the participation of the cruel treatment of a human life, in church, on a bitter cold winter night; after all she had come to worship and quietly sit in the back not bothering anyone, catching a bit of warmth. Thus, Individual against Individual, and Individual against Self. Question: What about Individual versus God, the Divine, or Goodness? Utilizing exposition, to give us the background of her main character, Walker writes of her main character that she was “a greyish Georgia earth” (para.2.1) (funny, I always talk about the Georgia red clay) by complexion (color); that she had seen suffering throughout her life, in poor clothing that were yet chosen carefully for the service, and that she seemed to  be seeing with an inner eye, delirious or in rapture? Mumbling and singing as she was thrown out brutally and walked into her death. Does this remind me on the story of pious Christians awaiting Jesus for supper, and then turning away the beggar? Yes, it absolutely does.      
Walker describes one of the most unjust oppression, by describing every detail important to the plot through the heart wrenching, heart breaking veil of two pictures emerging over and over again, painfully showing us, humanity, the evil we are capable of in the name of the powers that be, the current government of the time to justify people doing their job (Germans tried that too for a while but ultimately got condemned by the world court)  Yet, in the end there is release for the Elderly lady, unfortunately through death. Yet, as she was nearing death, she had an epiphany, or a vision, in which she saw Jesus coming toward her in a beautiful light and with warmth in form of a beautiful blanket that he was carrying toward her, as she walked toward him. Still, the emotions that will come flooding in to the heart, are those of incredulous, unbelieving sadness, that we as a species sink this low time and time again; while there is still the beauty and healing heart mending power of universal love that does connect us all. The literary element of setting is definitely crucially important to set the stage for the societal norm of black people’s lives being cruelly and heartlessly discarded. Thank God we are living in more enlightened times, where people will help each other more, stand up for each other more, and safe themselves by saving each other.
