Horatio Alger Jr.
Horatio Alger Jr. is an American writer of teenage novels about poor boys and their rise from humble conditions to a safe and comfortable middle-class life through good work. His works are characterized by a “rags to riches” story that had a defining impact on America during the Golden Age. All of Algiers' teenage novels basically share the same theme: a teenager improves his situation by behaving ethically. There is a “Horatio Alger” myth that says the boy got rich through hard work, but this is not true. In true stories, the cause of success is always an accident that benefits the boy after he has lived up to traditional virtues such as honesty, charity, and selflessness. The boy can return a large amount of lost money or save someone from the overturned car. This caused the boy - and his spell - to catch the attention of a wealthy person.
