Abstract

Among the contemporary African American writers, Gloria Naylor, renders a remarkable picture of African American women through her works. Her works focus on the problems women face at home and society and the consequences. Naylor’s interest in representing her women is explicit when many women, who are equally potent, rule each of her novels. Each woman is unique in her territory. Each woman brings out the complexity of life. Naylor, in her novels, takes up multiple protagonists, either male or female, and all of them share the same significance. Naylor’s uniqueness lies in using multiple protagonists and presenting them as equally influential. The present paper focuses on the multiple protagonists of Naylor in the novels The Women of Brewster Place (1982), and Bailey’s Café (1992).
