While Erica Funkhouser’s speaker, Henry, experiences injustice and lack of reward for his hard labor in “The Life of a Digger,” Margarita Engle’s speaker experiences prosperity and remuneration for their father’s hard work in “My Father’s Lunch.” Each author uses the setting of a laboring man’s lunch break to demonstrate the ramifications of a hard day’s work and the rewards or lack thereof for their efforts.
“A sense of inadequacy often informs the question around ‘Who am I?’”. An article written by Mel Schwartz for Psychology Today explores the idea of identity and what it means to an individual. The information presented in this article can be connected to characters in the novels The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. In each of these stories, characters are faced with a lack of sense of self, not knowing who they are because they think that they mean nothing to the world and are even worthless at times. This lack of identity due to the feeling of inadequacy affects Max in The Book Thief relationally and Lily in The Secret Life of Bees emotionally, while also creating better character development.
