Relationship between Celie and Shug


In the Exposition of The Color Purple, the relationship between Celie and Shug begins purely from a picture. With this picture, Celie for the first time feels attraction and love towards another human being other than Nettie. She can now refer to something as beautiful and this is a large stepping stone from her emotionless state largely caused by the men in her life.

In the Rising action, Celie also makes out in her head what Shug is like as a person. When Shug and Celie first meet, Shug is nothing like what Celie had made her out to be. Shugs first words that came out of her mouth were “you sure is ugly” to Celie. Despite this, they get to know each other more and they grow closer to one another. Celie opens up to Shug and Shug finds out the true nature of Mr.___ and Celie’s marriage. She sees how Celie is really treated by Mr._____ and grows closer to Celie in this part of the book.

In the Climax, Celie and Shug exhibit a lesbian relationship. As can be seen with the two sucking on eachothers breast, they share a very close relationship that is more than just sex. To Celie, her relationship with Shug is important because Shug makes her feel important. She gives Celie a sense of identity and also makes her feel sexually, physically, and emotionally more comfortable. Shug helps Celie get out of her emotionless state.

In the resolution of The Color Purple, Celies relationship with Shug seems to become strained. This is not the case though. Although Shug has her eye on another man, Germaine, she still loves Celie. Similarly, Celie loves Shug as much as she did before Germaine came along. There ability to love eachother even after Shug is sexually involved with another person shows the extent of their love. Celie although dreading Shug and Germaine’s relationship, cares enough for Shug to let her live a little.

         Symbol:motherhood, mentor
         Shug acts like a mother to Celie because she is the primary reason why Celie gains a sense of self identity and importance in the book. Through Shugs, mentoring and love, Celie was able to grow into an independent self thinking individual. Celie is now a stronger person because of Shug's influence.

Self Identity: "This song I'm bout to sing is call Miss Celie's song."(73) Shug gives Celie a sense of self identity. She names her after a song.


Celie and Shug’s relationship is very significant because it helps Celie the weak, submissive girl grow into the independent free thinking woman by the end of the book. The relationship Shug and Celie had made Celie feel important. The relationship boosted Celie’s confidence, and empowered her to be that independent woman.

  5. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

    And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession...

    He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

    And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

    Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:

  6. After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drosedebamenspellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

  8. *HOW MY MARRIAGE WAS RESCUED BY THE POWERFUL WORK OF A GREAT SPIRITUALIST* I'M SO GRATEFUL TO HIM FOR HELPING ME!!!.

    I have been married for 10 years with 2 kids. I met my husband when I was just 14 years old in high school. We have been through thick and thin as well as many of life's major milestones through the years that we have been together. I still see that 17 year old hottie when I look at him all these years. We have had ups and downs, shouting matches, make up sex, and disagreements. But as we have approached midlife- something has changed in him.After being in relationship with him for years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I pleaded with him, I made promises but he refused.
    I explained my problem to someone i met on the internet and she suggested that I should rather contact a spiritualist, Dr Ehijator the great spirutualist and that he could help me cast a spell that will bring my husband back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to give contact him, I e-mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before seven days, that my Ex will return to me after seven days, he made sacrifices and cast a spell and surprisingly in the seventh day, it was around 5pm,My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that has happened,and that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again with our 2kids he abandoned with me. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only geniune and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem.
    I advice strongly anyone with similar problems in his/her relationship or something different should without hesitation contact the geniune and powerful spiritualist through his Email: drehijatorspellhome@gmail.com

  9. Hi everybody. I recently saw a testimony about Dr. Todd in a blog I visit for relationship and dating counseling problems because i had been having serious issues with my boyfriend and we had been dating for six months, he just suddenly changed,he wasnt returning my calls,he started cheating,he was hurting me in many ways i never thought possible and I just thought I should try it*maybe out of desperation of some sort*..and I contacted Dr. Todd..At first everything felt dreamy and unbelievable,his consultations and solution was a little bit easy and strange and I was scared a little coz I heard read and heard lots of stories of fake spell casters,scams and i never really believed in magic..I played along with a little hope and and faith and I sent some few stuffs after everything and it worked like a miracle,everything went to a while new direction,it was and is amazing...I guess it was all good faith that made me read That particular post that faithful day..I hope he could help other people too like he did me...I did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished for*my husband,my family and my life back.

  10. Most women don’t know this... but even if a man is attracted to you or even says he loves you...

    ...chances are he still feels something is missing.

    Because there is a secret, emotional need hidden within his heart that he craves more than anything.

    And in most cases, is not being met.

    The problem is, if it’s not being met, his attention will inevitably wander until he finds a woman who can give it to him.

    Maybe one in a thousand women knows how to do this instinctively, and they usually rise to unbelievable levels of influence and fame.

    But most women, or men for that matter, don’t even know it exists.

    On the other hand, when you have this 1 simple secret...

    You won’t believe the shocking effect you have on the men in your life.

    Here’s a video I discovered that shows you exactly what I’m talking about:

    ==> Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> He’ll give his heart to the first woman who does THIS...

    Best,
    Ana
