Cry, the Beloved Country

Cry, the Beloved Country


by Alan Paton

Cry, the Beloved Country Chapter 24 Summary

  • Jarvis revisits his son's home. He walks in through the back door, past the blood stain on the kitchen floor, which is pretty horrifying, if we may say so.
  • While he's poking around, he finds an article called, "Private Essay on the Evolution of a South African."
  • In it, Arthur writes that, because he was brought up by good, kind people on a decent farm, he was raised not to know anything about the real (unfair, cruel) South Africa.
  • In his essay, Arthur promises to devote his life to helping his suffering nation.
