This paper analyses Hagar and Jason Currie's ideological positions in "The Stone Angel". Using Patricia Marchak's work, the paper argues that Hagar and Jason both very much represent capitalist and individualist values. Jason is a firm believer in the puritan work ethic, holding that people must simply work hard and take individual responsibility for their own lives. Hagar also represents a strong individualistic ethic, for she refuses to depend on anyone but herself in her confrontation with old age and death.
