The Color Purple, full of dramatic coincidences was considered by many critics to be a fairy story, not at all connected with the real world. Celie's comment: "frogs is what they stay" however contradicts the fairy tale element that suggests frogs when kissed will turn into princes. This is interesting, because after this point the reader notices a marked difference in Mr. _______, the man Celie was addressing. Nonetheless, the symbol of the frog [pictured] signals the reality and validity of Celie’s testament.
