Abstract
Walker’s second novel Meridian, which presents a balanced picture of black Womanhood. It openly mirrors the black woman’s experiences of exploitation – political, racial, sexual and emotional - and then envisages her total freedom through her pursuit of her wholeness as a human being. The novel vividly creates an image of the African-American woman with her complexity, diversity and depth. Meridian is Walker's most explicitly and narrowly a "political" novel. It exposes the gap between the official claims of American democracy and the state's exploitative and repressive practices. The novel is critical of sexism within the civil rights movement. For example, Meridian subordinates the struggle within gender to the "larger" questions raised by the imminent exhaustion or depletion of the movement itself.
