KEY LITERARY ELEMENTS

SETTING

Miss Lonelyhearts by Nathanael West analyses the lifestyle of the urban people. It reflects the selfish, cynical and meaningless ways in which people without faith live. Therefore, the major action of the novel takes place in the city, which is most probably New York (as the name of the place has never been mentioned).


The scene shifts to the country for some time, when Betty takes Miss Lonelyhearts to her auntís farm in Connecticut, when he falls ill. This change of scene brings considerable freshness into the novel, but Miss Lonelyhearts returns to the dismal darkness of the city, where the novel is actually set.
