    The crew of the seal hunting ship the Ghost stood in disbelief as they gazed upon their recently departed first mate. Then a most unusual thing occurred. The captain began yelling at the dead man like a raging storm. Oaths rolled from his lips in a continuous stream. And they were not nice and thoughtful words or mere expressions of indecency.

    Thomas Wolfe. In the novel Look Homeward Angel, the culture of the time is evident, through the speech, dress, and actions of the characters it became very clear that it was set in the early 1900's.
