You could tell Lily was afraid of her father, seeing how she hesitated to tell him about events such as her birthday. Lily was also born and raised in rags, since her mother died when Lily was at a young age. After her mother died, Lily was stranded with a confused and angry father, and had to sew her own clothes, since it is all she had. These two stories already look the same, and both are only a fraction of the way in. Huck’s life was extremely terrible until he starting living with the Widow Douglas, which is the equivalent of when Lily went to live with the Boatwright sisters.
“Ivan the Fool” was written by Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy - known as Leo Tolstoy from here on out. He is a Russian writer, and was born in the Russian Empire in 1828 (Hall). Throughout his life, even at his height in success, Tolstoy “agonized about what next to do with his life” (Merriman). He never knew what he did was the path he should have taken, and, even on his death bed, he stressed “over his self-worth and regretted his actions from decades earlier” (Merriman). Today Tolstoy is respected as one of the greatest novelists of all times.
Born in 1804, the grandson of a Jewish immigrant, a notorious gambler and a romancer of married women, Benjamin Disraeli came from a relatively poor Jewish background with no public school education. So how was it that this unconventional dandy rogue, in spite of the huge number of disadvantages he faced, became one of the most influential leaders and prime ministers of the Conservative party and Britain in the history of British politics? His incredible (if more than a little slow) rise to the top of the British political system was due to a combination of different factors but most importantly his own personal political and oratorical skills (most notably his brilliant show of political awareness in passing the second Reform Act in 1867) and the luck and circumstance that surrounded his life and the Conservative Party parliament at the time. And, even though the lack of other potential candidates did affect his chances if there had been other candidates, Disraeli’s ncredible political skills would have given him the edge needed to become leader. In his unexpected ascent to the top of British politics luck and circumstance were incredibly important in helping him achieve his ambitious plans to show the nature of his genius: Following the split in the Conservative Party over the Repeal of the Corn Laws, the Conservatives lost almost all of their politically talented MPs, thus leading for the party to be labelled the “Stupid Party” due to their minimal political interest and concern for the well-being of their land.
Tom was very young when his mother had died and his father had sold him when he could barely cry. That is another theory against Marxism referring to kids being sold back in those times. Having to sweep and sleep in the soot, it shows how cruel young chimney sweepers were treated back in that time. An example of that is shown in the poem when it
It was, nevertheless, a success on the London stage, and spawned the term "angry young men" to describe Osborne and other writers of his generation who employed harshness and realism. Alan Sillitoe was certainly affected by Osbourne’s play, saying he "didn't contribute to British theatre, he set off a landmine and blew most of it up." Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is Sillitoe’s most famous work but he encountered difficulties when trying to get the work published. It was rejected five times, though some publishers expressed an interest on condition that Sillitoe re-wrote certain things. The work was too realistic for them.
Mrs. Mooney was previously involved in a dysfunctional marriage to a “shabby stooped little drunkard” (61). Similar to her own marriage, Mrs. Mooney indirectly forces Polly to marry for money. Mrs. Mooney is a ruthless character as a result of her previous troubles. Consequently, Mrs. Mooney’s maternal connection with Polly is non-existent, turning their relationship into a business. When Mrs. Mooney is observing Polly’s interactions with young men, she becomes frustrated that “none of [the men] meant business” and considers sending Polly back to her previous job (63).
Told from a clear perspective, the story follows her experiences through bars around Limuru and also in Ilmorog. She is a school dropout because her parents lacked money. As a naive young rural woman desperate for employment, she falls prey to the deceit of an exploiter who promises to find her a job but, instead, dumps her after a one-night stand. Consequently, she finds herself trapped in a situation completely out to her experience leading to prostitution, a profession that is dehumanizing to womanhood. Differently from Wanjiru, “Mommy”, how her son calls her on “Night Women” feels trapped in between the day and night women from Ville Rose, taking men home and fulfilling her job around her sleeping son with only a curtain in between.
A miracle is just another word for hard work. In a world of hate, oppression, and abuse, two heavily misunderstood individuals fought against their set fate in order to prosper out of their hardships. Being abandoned by their parents at an early age, and being ostracized by society and family, the two had an unfortunate foundation to success in life. It is evident that women living during the 19th century had to live under atrocious stereotypes, and customs which limited the true potential in women. In Jane Eyre, and Memoirs of a Geisha, women were only viewed as objects and property owned by men.
