Both of Janie's husbands, Logan and Jody, had ideals that went against hers. Logan only thought about work and wealth, and Jody only cared for his social status.
They also gained fulfillment by forcing dominance over others, specially over Janie. Logan wanted to submit her by forcing her to perform labor work along with him. Jody treats her as ornament to his wealth and power, and tries to shape her into his vision of what a mayor’s wife should be.
Charles Dickens had a very negative view about the
Industrial Revolution. There were abuses
that sprang during that period. Unsafe
working conditions and long hours were just of the hardships that workers had
to endure during this period. Even
children had to work under such conditions. He called for improvements in the
way people worked during this period.
