But Who Is the Dreamer? Each of his films in this period tells two stories, one masking the other: In The Return this schism is given its most literal form yet:
When Jennie was two, her mother, Sarah, died whilst giving birth to her ninth child. As a result, Addams formed a significant bond with her father, John, who was a successful mill owner and politician.
John Addams corresponded with Lincoln, and Jane Addams associated her father and Lincoln as moral icons and personal inspirations throughout her life. The relationship between John and his daughter was important because it afforded Jane the attention of an educated and worldly adult, an opportunity not experienced by many young women of this era.
John Addams remarried but there was always a special bond between Jane and he. Although Addams was always a good student, she blossomed in college and became a widely acknowledged campus leader. She later replicated the woman-centered atmosphere at Hull-House.
When Addams graduated from college inshe intended to pursue a medical career, but after a short tine in graduate school, she decided that medicine was not in her future. The death of her father in that same year placed her life in turmoil.
Having lost direction in her life, she fell into a decade-long phase of soul searching, combined with sporadic health problems. During this period she undertook several trips to Europe.
On her second trip, she encountered the pioneering social settlement, Toynbee Hall in London. Toynbee Hall provided young men an opportunity to work to improve the lives of impoverished Londoners.
Soon after this encounter Addams developed a plan to start a social settlement in the United States. Addams enlisted the help of her friend Ellen Gates Starr in her noble scheme.
Starr had briefly attended Rockford College with Addams, so they shared an understanding of the empowerment that a female community could provide to its residents.
Addams and Starr open the Hull-House settlement in in the heart of a run-down neighborhood on the west side of Chicago. They began with few plans, few resources and few residents but with a desire to be good neighbors to the community.
Women, and to a lesser extent men, came from all over the country to live and work as part of this progressive experiment in communal living combined with social activism.
At first, Addams had rented the entire second floor and the first floor drawing room of the Hull-House building but eventually the settlement complex grew to accommodate one full city block.
Addams faced an ongoing challenge to explain the work Hull-House had undertaken. People often felt compelled to give settlement projects the familiar label of charity work, but Addams rebuffed this claim.Footnotes.
