ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "The Long Loneliness: The Autobiography of Dorothy Day". The author writes about the class struggle and the plight of the poor by personal explorations into the tenement jungles of Chicago and New York. She learned to love the poor and understood that poverty and destitution were not the result wholly of irrational forces; greed was also responsible for a diseased economic system. Her meeting with Peter Maurin was a turning point in her life. His doctrine of "cult, culture, and cultivation," later led to the Catholic Worker Movement.
