The Poisonwood Bible: Novel Summary
SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS
Note: All page numbers refer to the Harper Perennial Modern Classics edition of The Poisonwood Bible, 2005.
Note: Kingsolver divides her novel into seven “books,” and each book contains chapters related in the first person from various characters’ points of view. This guide follows that structure, treating each narrative section (identified by character speaking or writing and, at times, the place in which that character is located) as a “chapter,” regardless of length or brevity.
