Summary of A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara - Includes Analysis
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara tells the story of Jude St. Francis and the people in his life. Jude, left partially disabled by a terrifying injury as a teenager, is distraught about his past and hides most of that past and himself from others, even those closest to him. The relationships he forms as a young and older adult sustain him longer than he ever expected to live, but in the end, Jude has faced too much abuse and heartache to go on.

Jude developed a trusting relationship with one of the monks, Brother Luke. Jude and Brother Luke ran away from the monastery, but Brother Luke sold Jude as a child prostitute out of motel rooms...

The Earl of Essex by Henry Jones. This tragedy was dedicated to the Earl of Chesterfield, who was the author's patron, and who, it is supposed, assisted him in the composition of the work. There are two tragedies under the title of "The Earl of Essex;" but the following, by Henry Jones, brought upon the stage in 1753, was most favourably received, and became very attractive. The dramatist, who founds his plot and incidents on history, generally adds, from his invention, those scenes, which best describe the power of love. Here it has been otherwise, at least in the character of the queen; whom every distinguished historian has portrayed as more enamoured of her favourite Essex, than even this play will exhibit. The character of Essex is sustained with greater accuracy: the fiery quality of his temper; his alternate pride and humility, daring and servility, in presence of his royal mistress; with all his boisterous vows of loyalty to her; and tender oaths of love to another.
Karen Hatch-Taylor is a poet, a parent, and a survivor. She describes in the verses herein how she met her favorite author online and bridged ten thousand miles to win his heart, and then how she endured first a tennis-ball-sized brain tumor and subsequent surgery, then a battle with cancer and the discovery that her middle child is autistic. Truly her life, told here in her eloquent poetry, has been a mosaic of light and dark moments, of extraordinary pain, extraordinary love, and extraordinary survival against an unimaginable assault of stressful events and dire medical conditions. She hopes that this volume will inspire others who face adversity.
