Sinclair’s The Jungle Essay, Research Paper


The Jungle

Sinclair’s book ,The Jungle probably had to do the most with the fact

that he himself was a Socialist. He was brought up in Baltimore, and

his family was considerately poor. His father was not very successful

at his job and for this reason it seems good to believe he became a

Socialist because in communist countries it is said that all people are

treated equal. An opposite of this book would be “?Animal Farm”, which

Sinclair has probably never read. This other novel shows the bad sides

of Socialism and it ends with the rules saying, “All animals are

considered equal, but some are more equal than others”. In this book it

shows that a hard worker is not rewarded and is only disposed of once

he becomes a burden. The life of Sinclair and his book is reflected

upon only because he uses his opinions in the book. In his book, he

made a financial breakthrough and had his first successful novel.

Sinclair has written many books dealing with the problems of capitalism

and the solutions of communism which is not fair because he writes

nothing good of capitalism and it’s benefits. He also wrote

other books on his wisdom he had gained and relegion. He frequently

tried for office but never succeeded. His publications were originally

made mostly by publishing them himself.

The story itself takes place in Chicago with a group of immigrants.

They come to the U.S. and discover it’s a cruel, harsh world. First,

though, this group goes through a series of trials. The first is a marr

iage which costs much money, and the second is a death. After this,

comes a house which is sold to the one couple for three times the value

of the house. It’s at this time that the parents and other groups move

into this house. One character goes into a meat packing business where

he learns of unsanitary conditions. The second is a musician which is

currently down on his luck and his wife goes out to work. After a while

the first character breaks his arm and loses time at work and is then

not received back. He learns at this point when you are new, they will

accept you, but once injured they throw out the crippled. At this point

this character talks to a Socialist and begins to travel to meetings.

But first he returns to his job. And at the point of return he becomes

a manager. After his first Socialist rally, he listens mainly to two

people, one a ex-professor whose has become a philosopher and the other

who is currently an evangelist who has become a traveler.
