Abstract

Morrison, like Walker, underlines the significance of family values while, at the same moment, confronting the viewer with the implications of parental absence or sexual abuse within a family. Hermann confirms the nuclear family's direct impact on an individual's growth: "The basis of personality growth is a safe sense of association with caring individuals. The traumatized individual loses his fundamental feeling of self when this link is broken "(Hermann, p. 38). Herman further claims that "the stressful event is destroying the faith that in relation to others one can be oneself. The unsatisfactory resolution of the ordinary disputes over autonomy in development leaves the individual susceptible to shame and doubt" (Hermann, p. 38). Herman's observations are reflected in both books ' fictitious protagonists; they have all been subjected to traumatic experiences from an early era. Both Sethe and Celie lose their mothers; they are exposed to the “double victimisation” being black and being females (Pellicer-Ortín and Andermahr, p. 98). The following paragraphs argue that while Beloved emphasizes the significance of the connection between mother and children, the parental problems and maternity as such are somewhat shadowed in The Color Purple, while the emphasis is on the bonding between women.
