    It's on "a short, dark street," and the narrator tells us that "the lights were very dim in this room and we couldn't see. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue. Later, when the narrator joins the Brotherhood, he believes that he can fight for racial equality by working within the ideology of the organization, but he then finds that the Brotherhood seeks to use him as a token black man in its abstract project. Blue waves are heat waves, dervishes in sand.

    Those 70 compositions survive, a fount of gnomic musical wisdom for future generations to explore. Blue is the typical heavenly colour… The ultimate feeling it creates is one of rest… [Footnote:] Supernatural rest, not the earthly contentment of green. Afterwards, the narrator's own suffering allows him to recognize and understand his brother's suffering, pushing him to write Sonny in prison for the first time. He recorded it in black ink on white paper.

    It's on "a short, dark street," and the narrator tells us that "the lights were very dim in this room and we couldn't see. Struggling with drugs and depression, Sonny sinks down into the Harlem underworld, but finds meaning in a uniquely African American form of artistic expression: jazz. Upon arriving in New York, the narrator enters the world of the Liberty Paints plant, which achieves financial success by subverting blackness in the service of a brighter white. In fact, as the author shows, between the ages of 11 and 13 he studied with a teacher who exposed him to the classical literature, including the works of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Liszt.

Ritualized Dialogue in Corregidora In an interview with Michael Harper in Chant of Saints, Jones describes what she calls "ritualized dialogue": What I mean by "ritualized dialogue" is that either the language isn't the same that we would use ordinarily, or the movement between the people talking isn't the same.

Right then and there he wanted to play the sax. Gathered here is a posy of blue from some of my favorite encounters with this more-than-color in the literature of the past two centuries. She eases the tension when Sonny returns after his stint in prison, helping make the family whole again.

Introduction Much that has been written about Gayl Jones's first novel Corregidora has focused on content. Lucid and true. And for a moment it is easy to believe each one has one — will become all of what is contained in the spore: will live out its days as planned.
