Who is the poor little girl?

Hans Christian Andersen, a Danish poet and novelist, wrote the short story "The Little Match Girl." A impoverished little girl, shivering and barefoot, attempts to sell matches in the street on a chilly New Year's Eve. She is soon caught by a cruel man who sells her as a slave to a housekeeper, who uses her as a servant for her own family. One night when the house is asleep, the match girl escapes from her master and mistress and flees into the snow. There she meets a prince who has been turned into a statue, which causes her joy. The next morning the prince revives and they marry. They then live happily ever after.

Andersen based his story on a real-life incident that had taken place in Copenhagen around 1836. A nine-year-old girl named Matilda Doe was left alone in an apartment building while her parents went out shopping. She died of cold bloodedness. Her body was found the following morning by a janitor who had gone to clean the building's stairs.

In Denmark, where this story is very popular, it is believed that if you write your name and address on a piece of paper and leave it under someone's pillow on New Year's Eve, then you will receive money or gifts in the new year.

Who is the poor little girl? Why is she on the streets?

Ans. The poor little girl was out on the streets selling matches in order to earn some money to go home with her. She had nothing to shield her head in the cold. She had strolled out of her house wearing her mother's slippers. Her name was Mary and she was only 7 years old.

It appears that Mary's father was a coal miner who went down into his mine every day to work. He never returned home at night. Instead, he sent money home to his wife but it wasn't enough for a decent living. So, she took in sewing to make more money. But even this didn't suffice to give her family a good life. So, she decided to take her daughter Mary out on the street so that she could offer her body in order to live.

There are many children out there who are being sold by their parents. Sometimes, the parents do not have any other choice but to sell their children because they need the money or care. But most of the times, it is done against the parents' will. In America, about 50,000 children are reported missing each year. Of these, about 10 percent are found alive without any signs of injury or abuse. The rest are either dead or have been trafficked across state lines.

In conclusion, poverty is the main reason why children are sold off by their parents.

What is this story about the little girl?

"The Little Girl" tells the story of Kezia, a little girl who misinterpreted her father's strictness and was sometimes terrified of him. When he was at home, she kept her distance from him. He was as large as a giant in her opinion. She would frequently become anxious and stutter when speaking to him. One day when her father went to work, she was left alone in the house.

Kezia had a big imagination and used it to create stories with her dolls. She imagined them living together in a beautiful house with an apple tree in their front yard. Her father didn't like stories, so they couldn't play together as often as she'd like. One day she decided to write down all of her stories on paper, in order to read them to him later. But just as she was writing the last word of the last story, her father came home early! Overwhelmed by fear, she pushed her writing into the corner of the room and hid it under his bed.

When her father asked her where she had been, she told him that she had gone out for a walk. He thought that was very strange because there were no streets near their house, only fields and trees. Kezia wanted to make sure that he didn't find her writing, so she pretended to look for something in another part of the house. Once she was sure that he had gone back inside, she crept upstairs to see her dolls again.

What is the moral of the little girl?

The lesson of Katherine Mansfield's short tale "The Little Girl" is that parents should not be apathetic to their children. This is because showing love contributes to the creation of a loved, caring atmosphere for the healthy development of children. Mansfield also implies that if parents did pay attention to their children, they would find many ways to show their love.

She creates this theme through the story's narrative voice, which is that of a young girl who talks about her family. The little girl expresses her disappointment with her mother because she doesn't seem to care about what happens to her. She also complains about her father, saying that he works too much and does not spend enough time with them. Finally, she mentions that there are some other children in the neighborhood who have a better life than she does. It is clear from these statements that she feels neglected by her parents.

Mansfield uses this neglect as a way to express how important it is for children to feel loved and cared for by their parents. If parents showed an interest in their children's lives, they would find many ways to demonstrate it. The little girl in this story realizes this but still wants her parents to pay more attention to her.

Throughout history, authors have used stories as a means of communication about issues such as morality, society, and human nature.
