Through this play, the playwright shows his social concern for the oppressed industrial workers. He believes that the capitalist system definitely persecutes the working class people, but the playwright also criticizes a socialist movement that can not fulfill the needs or the individuals and solve their personal and unique problems. The industrial world and the working environment for the workers in the play is toxic and dehumanizing. Likewise, the world of the rich is superficial and dehumanizing. Yank, the main character, stands as a symbol of the human condition, standing alienated from nature owing to his isolated consciousness. He does not find his place in any environment or social group.
