One of the distinguishing characteristics of M. Leon Frapie's works is his choice of characters. They are not chosen from the fashionable, aristocratic or intellectual class, but from among the humblest of the wage-earning class. M Frapie depicts the drabness, ignorance and poverty which oppress these people, and perceives with his keen sensibilities the commonplace tragedy of their lives and of the lives of their children. His own emotion becomes the medium by which a bond of sympathy toward them is transferred to the reader.
