Abstract: Harriette Simpson Arnow imbued the main character of her novel The Dollmaker with a strength of character that would allow her to survive a transplantation from ideal living to the more demanding life in the city. Gertie is the mother of five children who must endure all the sufferings brought by their dislocation as well as the loss of her children. Arnow’s achievement is in showing a simple woman who could overcome suffering despite her inability to articulate her needs.
