Olors in the Novel My Name is Redby Orhan Pamuk

My name is Redby Orhan Pamuk


The title of this book clearly suggests that color is an important motif in the novel. Subsequent chapters and character names reinforce this idea. Beyond some of the obvious meanings of color (for example, color is an important element of visual art), identify and discuss the symbolic functions of color in the novel. Write an argumentative essay on My Name is Redin which you explain how colors reflect or contradict certain characters beliefs about themselves, one another, and the artistic process. You may wish to make an argument about which of the colors is most important and why.
