‘The Cry of the children’ is a poem written by Elizabeth Browning describing the sorrows of the factory children as a result of greed and oppression. In this case, this study will be guided by a thesis stated as; only death would change the emotions, pains and sorrows of the children in child labor. From the poem it can be revealed that, children working in the iron factory keep on weeping because of the way they are treated. They have sad faces as a result of being oppressed by their masters and wish to die rather than stand the oppression. It is of importance to note that, this work performed by these children is not worth their age and strength (Rhoswen, 2009).
