Everyday Use

Inner Blues

In "Everyday Use," Alice Walker analyzes the complexities associated with race, class, gender, and society. Similar to James Baldwin, Walker uses her unique, narrative style to explore the “ambiguity and irony found in Negro life,” especially in regards to sibling relationships and the outside forces that attempt to destroy the bond.

Compare and contrast how Baldwin's and Walker's characters use this connection as the means to sort through their 'inner blues.
