Representation of African Females Spiritual Pursuit in Sweat

Theme analysis of Sweat

According to the statistics analysis of the US Department of Justice, over 95% of the victims of domestic violence are inevitably women and they suffered a lot from their partners with great frequencies. Therefore, domestic violence has gradually grown into a very prevalent problem in today’s world and especially in the US existing in the groups of African families. Domestic violence is such an awful crime but many people ignore or overlook the severity of this crime and the women are lacking corresponding support and necessary help when they are facing these problems.

What’s worse, many African females don’t have the awareness of seeking help and they just randomly let their unhealthy emotions and angers ruin their life and their future. As for the theme and analysis of the story of Sweat, it is mainly concerning the fate and stories related to the African females in America. The heroin of the story is Delia Jones who is a hardworking wash-woman and she is preparing to start her work on Sunday evening. When she was doing the laundry on the floor of her house, she felt something sliding over her shoulders and it is not a snake but the bull whip of her violent husband Sykes who is abusive to her in the story.

 

Knowledge & Creation background of Sweat

Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) was one of the most important writers in the literature of America in the 20th century and she was also a famous collector of folk tales and anthropologist. Born in the southern part of the US, she was extremely active in the Harlem Renaissance. She devoted herself to the tradition of African culture with numerous works and fictions. In this way, she also made a great difference in revealing the awakening of female awareness and she had also built a milestone in portraying the African female and she was also publicly recognized one of most important female African writers. Furthermore, Zora was also dedicated herself to the ethnic traditional culture collection and protection. She was very proud of her identity as a member of African American and she also denied and fell into the confusion of being American and African at the same time.

 

Specifically speaking, she refused to claim and view African people as problems in the society of America and also refused to describe and portray the Africans as a kind of “child with birth defect” under the system of racial discrimination. Therefore in her works, she deeply and thoughtfully reveal the problems of self-discrimination within the African community and she believed that it is a kind of erosion of soul for the Africans. In order to awaken the confirmation and love for their original identity of being African Americans, she successfully revealed the problems and proposed the corresponding appeal for both Africans and white people in the US (69). However, after the peaking period of the Harlem Renaissance, the protest literature became the new mainstream for African literature and the works of Zora were also forgotten by other people until the 1960s. With the rising movements of black people in the US, their awareness of ethnics and rights have also been awakened.

 

Zora was one of the most controversial writers in the American literature history and there were a series of mysteries in her life. In fact, the work of Sweat do emphasize and reveal the sufferings of African women through telling the story of Delia and her husband Sykes in the context of African culture. Through the works of Zora, she once again reminded the American society of the position of African females and she made them become the focusing point to be more confident, which is totally different from the gender pattern of American African literature. In this way, it can guide more African females to find themselves, express themselves and confirm themselves (72). Therefore, the works of Zora has broken the forbidden zone of traditional American literature and this has also paved the road for the future development and rejuvenation of African culture subsequently. Hurston’s life had countless ups and downs and she also grew to be a female with good personality to trust her own charm and power. Gradually, she was deeply attached to this kind of personality and she hoped more African women can learn from her and discovered more in their own life pursuit.

 

Character analysis in Sweat

Just like main character in “Sweat” by Zora, she was originally a very diligent and hardworking wife who struggled to support her family depending on washing clothes for others. She has very good traits of being a traditional female in family; however her husband, Sykes is really abusive of her and always comes up with various methods to harass her without mercy or respect of any kind. Actually, Sykes show no respect to his wife and he even keeps a girlfriend for himself and also keep complaining about the figure of Delia. This has definitely caused severe effects and psychological trauma on Delia. One day Skyes came home and got bitten by the snake since the snake was missing from the cage. As a result, Delia watched him die instead of seeking for help because her love towards the husband was completely gone. In the portray of this figure, all the feelings and emotions of Delia were described in Sweat by Hurston. From a different perspective, local people also have different attitudes and ideas towards the behavior and sufferings of Delia (72). Through the story of Delia, the author display Delia’s sufferings and how she can fight for herself and defend herself from his husband’s habitual beatings. Her husband’s ruthless and cruel treatment to Delia finally leads to the aftermath of his own death.

Mood, Irony & Symbols in Sweat

The story displays a very clear and sharp contrast between the narrator’s elegant lyricism and vernacular speech of the characters shown in the stories. Therefore, the entire story has a very oppressive mood and it also implicates the extreme conflict between Delia and her husband so as to exemplify the domestic violence and pain suffered by many other African women just like Delia in the story. This has also made preparations for the character and plot development to the climax that her husband Sykes was bitten by the snake and finally Delia watched him die.

In addition, there are some important symbols revealed in this story which also conveys the theme of the story. First, it is about the snake which is considered as the Christian imagery which is known as a symbol of the Devil. In the story, Delia is extremely afraid of snake, which can also be perceived as a kind of fear for the evilness and when Sykes brings the snake to the home, it can also be considered as a symbol that he introduces evil to the household, which also eventually kills himself in return. As for the symbol single one open eye of Sykes when he gradually dies, Delia cannot forget about the single eye and the fearful feelings towards Sykes (34). In this way, the single one becomes the symbol of Delia’s slight and also vague guilt towards Sykes. Finally, the symbol is about the River Jordan which is another important biblical symbol in the story and also in the actual Bible. Therefore, this symbol also represents a kind of God’s justice, reckoning and deliverance for the theme of the story. These three symbols are also of great importance to convey the fearful feelings and sufferings of Delia as well as how it can be related to other African females in the US.

As for the presentation of Irony in the story, Sykes is viewed as the ultimate scare to Delia and Sykes also became the evil antagonist of the story. The dark grey sky in the story also means evil and sadness through the story. When he uses the bull whip to terrify Delia and Delia said that she may be terrified to death because of snake. What the irony lies is that finally Sykes dies from the snake’s bite. During the moments that Sykes will be facing his death, he felt remorse for what he had done; but there is no chance for him to make up for all the mistakes his has made. These ironies make the story become more apparent and intensive in its plot development (69). When Sykes is dying, the sky began to clear and the sun begins to rise, which also means the end of domestic violence and evilness. Other factors such as freedom, purity and peace are also pursued by Delia and other African females just like her.

 

Conclusion

The essay talks about the symbols, background knowledge and irony used in the Story Sweat so as to reveal the fate of African females and how they should fight for themselves in seeking freedom and valuing themselves. The symbols and ironies in the story also become powerful tools to portray the figures and creates the tones of the story.
