Constantine Bates

Character Analysis

Constantine is a beloved and tragic figure. Much of The Help is driven by Skeeter's need to find out why Constantine, the black maid who raised her and was her confidante all the way through Skeeter's college days, has disappeared from her life. By the time Skeeter learns the truth, Constantine is dead and Skeeter can never thank the woman for all she's done. In many ways, Skeeter's relationship with Constantine seems a lot like Aibileen's loving relationship with Mae Mobley.
