Modernist Conception of Personality in Wolfe's "Look Homeward Angel"
Thomas Wolfe once wrote to his mother: “The things that really mattered sank in and left their mark.”1 It was really hard for the writer to see “the greatness” of America, which, in spite of the rapid development of machinery and economics, represented nothing else than decline of the nation. That was the bitter revelation of the writer about the country, which patriot he could not be anymore due to the moral decay of one of the most powerful countries. “Because “of moral grandeur”2 there was nothing left. And thus, due to this reason, the writer, as an example has chosen the typical family of the numerous families, striving for money-grubbing and enrichment, at times purposelessly collecting money and multiplying them by investing. And the greed for it, in their unawareness, was making them uncontrollable and scarcely realizing what they were doing it for.
