Wang Lung
He begins life as a poor farmer
and maintains a fierce attachment
to the land. However, he is also
extremely ambitious and envies the
material success of the wealthy
Hwangs. He is increasingly drawn
to the Hwangs’ decadent lifestyle.
O-Lan
A woman sold to the wealthy Hwang
family as a slave when she was ten years
old. After she marries Wang Lung, she
achieves a respectable position as the mother
of three sons. She is a
strong, hardworking, resourceful woman and
a devoted wife. Still, she is continually
marginalized by Wang Lung, and she is
eventually replaced in his affections.
Cuckoo
A slave who worked in the
House of Hwang at the same
time as O-lan. Cuckoo was
beautiful in her youth, so the
Old Master took her as his
concubine while O-lan worked
as a kitchen slave. Arrogant
and bad-tempered, she insulted
and berated O-lan constantly.
Wang Lung’s
Uncle
A cunning scoundrel and thief.
Wang Lung’s uncle is the
younger brother of Wang Lung’s
father. Because the uncle is a
member of the older
generation, Wang Lung must
show him respect and give him
support in difficult
times, despite his despicable
nature.
The Story starts with the
Wang Lung’s wedding.
After Wang Lung
brings his quiet but
diligent new wife
home, she works side by
side with him in the
fields until their first
child is born

Wang Lung is a poor young
peasant who lives in an
earthen brick house with his
father. His father has
arranged for him to marry a
slave girl named O-lan from
the great family of the House
of Hwang.
They are delighted with
their son, and at the New
Year O-lan dresses him up
and proudly takes him to
the House of Hwang to
show him off.
Their son is most
beautiful among all
babies in the village.
And Wang Lung feels
proud at him.
But soon Wang Lung encounters
Difficulties Wang Lung sells his
furniture for a bit of silver to take
his family south, though he refuses to
sell his land. They ride a fire wagon
to a southern city, where they live in
a make shift hut on the street.

In the southern city, Wang
Lung perceives the
extraordinary wealth of
westerner sand Chinese
aristocrats and
capitalists, and he is
interested in the
revolutionaries protests of
the oppression of the po
There follow seven years of
prosperity, during which
the sons grow and begin
school .a third son is born
with a twin sister and the
harvest is so plentiful.
Bored with his plain and coarse
wife , he ventures into a tea
shop in town operated by a man
from the south where the rich
and idle spend their time
drinking, gambling, and visiting
prostitutes . There he begins an
affair with Lotus, a beautiful
but manipulatively demanding
courtesan whom he desires
obsessively.
O-lan is deeply hurt and
angry, which makes Wang
Lung defensively guilty and
cold with her
She is content to die
only after her first son’s
marriage is
consummated, so she can
expect a grandson.

Family affairs continue to
have ups and downs. O-lan’s
sickness finally overpowers
her, and Wang Lung’s tender
solicitousness to her on her
death bed cannot fully
compensate for the insults
she received when Lotus
moved into the house.
His eldest son persuades him to
buy the old estate of the House
of Hwang in to both as a
means of moving out from the
place where the disgraceful
uncle and his wife live, and as
a symbol of Wang Lungs
elevated social position.

Finally, Wang Lung returns
to the earth house of his land
to die. Material prosperity
has brought him superficial
social satisfaction, but only
his land can provide peace
and security. Even his final
days are troubled, when
overhears his two older sons
planning to sell the land as
soon as he dies.
The story tells us that how a family can
rise from poverty to a position of wealth.
Their were two distinct classes of people;
the rich and the poor. This is a story of a
person who is a poor man and knows
nothing besides the value of land. As a man
pours his energies into his land he reaps The story tells that the
great benefits-survival and self-respect. only thing that can truly
save China is the honest
toil of her people who must
be allowed to claim the
rewards of their efforts
without oppression.
