Master Harold

There are many different themes in short stories, novel, and plays.Some of these themes might include dishonesty, love and romance, or hate.Athol Fugard's play "Master Harold" has a theme of a dysfunctional family.The theme is portrayed through the main character Master Harold as: too quickly grown up, having adult responsibilities, and denying his true feelings.
