Every piece of literature that has been written uses words, which have concrete meaning in everyday life. As a result of that it cannot ever be completely abstract. Theme is what sustains its link with living, by giving it a topic or idea that extends it beyond the aesthetic, and unites it with the preoccupation of humanity. A work can have one theme or many, and Margaret Laurence\'s and Davies Robertson\'s essential humanism makes it very inevitable that in this respect their novels are multif

(p. 3) Hagar

Pride was my wilderness and the demon that led me there was fear... [I was] never free, for I carried my chains within me, and they spread out from me and shackled all I touched. (Laurence, 292). Hagar\'s pride and stubbornness were the causes of her failed relationships and lack of love in her life. Her excessive pride
