This article deals with the loss of the mother in early childhood of two writers and how their mothers’ deaths influence their life and work.

Abstract: 

From absolute dependence at the beginning of life, there are gradual changes to relative dependence on the way to independence. In the event of the mother’s failure or sudden death in the early stages, the process of development is distorted. This article deals with the loss of the mother in early childhood of two writers and how their mothers’ deaths influence their life and work.
