Storyboard Text

  • The Immigrant
  • The Father
  • The Worker
  • "They stood there while the sun went down upon this scene, and the sky in the west turned blood-red, and the tops of the house shone like fire. Jurgis and Ona were not thinking of the sunset, however-- their backs were turned to it, and all their thoughts were of Packingtown, which they coud see so plainly in the distance." (pg. 22) Jurgis is excited for his new life as an immigrant in America! 
  • The Widower
  • "So Jurgis would begin to forget and be happy because he was in a world where there was a thing so beautiful as the smile of little Antanas, and because such a world could not be good at the heart of it." (pg. 92) Jurgis gets through his pain in life by spending time with his newborn baby son, baby Antanas, who was named after Jurgis's father who had recently died.
  • The Hobo
  • ¨The manner in which they did this was something to be seen and never forgotten. They worked with furious intensity, literally upon the run-- at a pace with which there is nothing to be compared except a football game. It was all highly specialized labor, each man having his task to do; generally this would consist of only two or three specific cuts...¨ (pg. 29) Jurgis is finally realizing all the unsanitary, brutal factors that come along with working in Packingtown. 
  • The Troublesome
  • ¨The word rang through him like the sound of a bell, echoing in the far depths of him, making forgotten chords to vibrate, old shadowy fears to stir-- fears of the dark, fears of the void, fears of annihilation. She was dead!" (pg. 151) Jurgis tries to cope with the loss of his wife and newborn baby. 
  • ¨But Jurgis was not staying. He was a free man now, a buccaneer. The old Wanderlust had got into his blood, the joy of the unbound life, the joy of seeking, of hoping without limit." (pg. 173) Jurgis finally feels free as he runs away from all his problems back home and lives his life as a hobo
  • ¨This was an unfortunate decision, however, for it drove him more quickly than ever into the saloons. From now on Jurgis worked from seven o'clock until half past five, with half an hour for dinner; which meant that he never saw the sunlight on weekdays. In the evenings there was no place for him to go except a bathroom; no place where there was light and warmth...¨ (pg. 180) Jurgis is trying to get his life back together now and be the man that he wished he was before.
