The Bluest Eye Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- How many competing ideas of beauty are present in the novel?
- Is there a relationship between racism and sexual violence in the book?
- How does the use of multiple perspectives change your understanding of the characters and plot?
- What is the relationship between the Dick and Jane passages and the chapters they precede?
- Who is to blame for Pecola's fate?
- Is Pecola insane at the end of the novel?
- Are there comedic moments in the novel, or is it just one big sob fest?
