The Empathy Promise: To Exist Within Ourselves and Within Others

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this essay, I examine four African American novels: Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, Toni Morrison's Beloved, and Alice Walker's Third Life of Grange Copeland and In Search of Our Mother's Gardens. I analyze how the main characters in the novels use empathy as a tool to develop their identities and counter the numbness in their lives. The courage and vulnerability they demonstrate throughout the novels help them to transform their lives and the lives of those they encounter. The relationships within the novels are developed by gaining a greater self-awareness through critical reflection, understanding, and sharing their past and present experiences. Empathy shared between the characters and themselves, as well as their friends and family, allowed them to learn how to fully exist.
