Thinking about writing an essay review of Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska
1. Sarah, the protagonist of Bread Givers, lives in New York City. Describe the world in which she lived at the juncture of the 19th and 20th centuries.
2. How do her gender, ethnicity, her religion, and her immigrant status make Sarah different from both Ben Franklin and Frederick Douglass?
3. What do we learn about social class dynamics of Sarah’s life as compared to other, more privileged, Americans during her time and in her place?
4. Does Sarah’s Life suggest that work in progress in commonplace in American Life? Is upward mobility a likely outcome in life for Americans in the 20th century or earlier?
5. Are the elements that make or achievement and happiness in Sarah’s life fundamentally differemt from those that shape Franklin and Douglass?
