Horatio Alger Series: Phil the Fiddler

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
Phil the Fiddler by Horatio Alger revolves around the hero, Phil. He is actually Fillipo, a young Italian boy sold into effective slavery by his parents to the padrone, a ruthless, abusive, and miserly master that requires the boys in his care to play the violin in the streets of New York for sixteen hours a day for money that is paid in full to him. The story is a strong departure from the average Alger work. The boy is not noted for his honesty or quick wits; instead, Alger presents him as a frightened boy who has been nearly beaten into complete surrender to his horrible life. Like the typical Alger hero, Phil is essentially an orphan, who through a horrible change of circumstances has been forced into a low level of work.
