The working class, through trade unions and other struggles becomes conscious of itself as an exploited class. As Marx’s theory suggests exploitation of this kind will result in revolution in the favour for social change.

When I first read his novel for the first time, I was unfazed by the hardship William had endured. I partially blame that on the society we live in; we have become desensitized to others struggles and strifes because that is all the media shows. However, by contemplating the similar struggles humans have, I am now able to truly sympathize with William and others who face adversities and conflict in this
