Essay Requirements:   Masters of the Dew, by Jacques Roumain As Ruth Danenhower Wilson observed: Masters of the Dew is a deeply moving tale of love and tragedy in the struggle of a wise though illiterate young peasant to keep his little community from starvation in time of drought and of the success of his plan after hate and misunderstanding have martyred him. The characters talk as real human beings; their milieu is vividly shown in language of a beautiful, poetic simplicity. Looking deeper the tale is seen as an allegory of the universal application of the uselessness of men’s struggle to overcome natural forces, including those released by natural science, unless they can first learn to live and work together for survival. Essay: Write a unified and coherent essay in which you evaluate Roumain’s perspectives in the importance of aiming to live and work together. In your essay, be sure to: .
