Bluer than Mine...It's easy to read the final chapter quickly, since it consists mostly of rapid dialogue between Pecola and what appears to be an imaginary friend. Essentially, Pecola convinces herself that the reason no one talks to her and the reason her own mother can't make eye contact with her is because everyone is jealous of her eyes. It's just too hard, and Pecola is too darn young, to admit that the real reason she is being ignored is because she was raped by her father and delivered his child. Nonetheless, Pecola is happy.
How does the final casement affect the work as a whole? Should the reader find consolance in that Pecola is "happy"?
