Abstract
Carson McCullers has been considered as one of the most influential American southern women writers in the 20th century. Her first novel The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter is a spiritual presentation of the Southern Americans against the background of American South in the 1930s, the time between the Great Depression and the Second World. In this novel, McCullers told a desperately sad story about the deaf-mute Singer, his deaf-mute friend Antonatoulos and his four friends, who are the little girl Mick, the black doctor Copeland, the drunken Jake and the observer Biff. The characters in this novel share a common feature: loneliness.
