  • Morrison's Pilate is, like McCuller's Amelia, androgynous, larger than life, and immensely, heroically capable. But while McCullers's character ends her career and her fistfight lying flat on her back (undone, disauthored, in tragic capitulation to the worst of white patriarchy), Pilate's life ends in tragedy and largesse.
