JOSIAH BONT by Jeremy Anderson Josiah Bont, in the novel “Year of Wonders” is a complex character that has a huge negative influence on his family and the people that come in contact with him throughout his village. Josiah’s love and respect for his family was diminutive for the majority of his existence in the novel, and his death suits that of a bully, who is violet to his family both physically and psychologically. His daughter Anna Frith sums up Josiah quite nicely “My father loved a pot better then he loved his children”. Josiah’s feeling towards Anna was a sense of un-accomplishment, but then opportunities for young, illiterate women in those times were scarce. He would often physically abuse her, and put her down in front of others.
