MOOD

Miss Lonelyhearts, by Nathanael West focuses on a world, which has no faith in humanity, and where trust in God is a ridiculous joke. West believes that such a world cannot be helped, even when God provides it with a way of hope in the form of Miss Lonelyhearts. This hope is abolished by the misjudgment of this morose crowd.


The mood of the novel is therefore gloomy like the color of the sky when rubbed with a "sailed crasser." The word pictures throughout the book evoke colors like gray and black. The painful letters smeared with sorrow that Miss Lonelyhearts receives, further emphasizes this mood of depression. Towards the end there is brightness when Miss Lonelyheartsí spirit is rekindled, but the gloom resets with his murder.
