Abstract:
The collection consists of an anonymous diary, dating from January 1, 1877 to January 26, 1889, detailing the daily activities of an unmarried, middle-aged woman. Listing her daughter, Carrie, as her only source of comfort, she details the exhausting burden of her household chores and of her job as cleaning lady at an unnamed church. Extremely depressed and dissatisfied with her futile, monotonous existence, she looks forward to death as her only release.
