245 ritualistic grooming

“Younger Brother understood that whatever its’ practical justification this was no less than a ritualistic grooming for the final battle.”

This statement focuses on Coalhouse Walker’s decision to have his head and mustache shaved after his picture was posted on the cover of newspapers throughout the country. This “ritualistic grooming” is basically a tradition before a final decision or encounter.

Ritualistic Grooming

A new haircut and clean shaven face are essential for situations such as weddings, accepting awards, giving speeches, or any important encounter where you will be publicly displayed. Coalhouse’s final attack was going to be coming up soon and he knew it. At this point in the novel it is unclear whether or not Coalhouse knew what his final act was going to be, but the ritualistic grooming implies that he knew it was coming up shortly.

The article above lists five rules for wedding day grooming. These steps include avoiding trends and sticking to a timeless look, having a neat shave, timing your haircut about a week before the big event, having it cut by a professional, and getting plenty of sleep the night before. Although Coalhouse Walker Jr. was not getting married, he basically followed these rules as best as he could, considering his current situation. He followed the first three rules and, had he been able to come out of hiding from the authorities, he probably would have followed rule four as well.
