A Child of the Jago

A Child of the Jago by Arthur Morrison
By: (1863-1945)

"A Child of the Jago" by Arthur Morrison is a gritty and realistic portrayal of life in the slums of London in the late 19th century. The story follows young Dicky Perrott, a boy born and raised in the poverty-stricken neighborhood known as the Jago. Through Dicky's eyes, readers are given a raw and unflinching look at the hardships faced by the residents of the Jago, from crime and violence to hunger and disease.

Morrison's writing is vivid and immersive, pulling readers into the world of the Jago and making them feel the desperation and hopelessness that permeate the air. The characters are well-developed and complex, with each one struggling to survive in a harsh and unforgiving environment. Dicky himself is a compelling protagonist, his resilience and determination shining through even in the face of overwhelming adversity.

While the subject matter of "A Child of the Jago" is bleak and at times harrowing, Morrison's skillful storytelling and compassionate portrayal of his characters make this a book that is both captivating and thought-provoking. It serves as a stark reminder of the brutal realities faced by the impoverished and marginalized members of society, and leaves a lasting impact on the reader long after the final page is turned.
