Big Maggie by John B. Keane In my opinion, Maggie Polpin is a tough, uncompromising woman: the matriarch of the Polpin family. She speaks her mind to the point of being insulting to both her family and neighbours and her actions are often displayed through her controlling, aggressive and violent nature. #Lab / Big Maggie / Brooklyn / Comparative / English / General Vision and Viewpoint / Silas Marner Significant events in texts and the impact they have on readers often help to clarify the general vision & viewpoint of those texts. #Lab.
