Proposal For Angela Proposal For Angela\'s Ashes: While reading Angela’s Ashes in my junior year of high school I thought about how life must have been for other families with low incomes during the Great Depression. Although Angela’s Ashes takes place mainly in Ireland during the Potato Famine, I believe that what the McCourt family went through was very similar to the struggles that the working class experienced in the United States in the 1930’s. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The fact that the story is about how a death consumes the lives of the entire town as well as the victim, shows that it is concerned with death in life and asks us to evaluate our own views. Not only is the story concerned with death in life on the liter
