Write an essay of at least 5 paragraphs about the historical context or setting of the drama  Trifles by Susan Glaspell, and why the main character of this drama was at the mercy of societal forces for his/her problems to be resolved. The main character of any drama is that character that bears the drama’s overall or grand conflict.

Careful not to give a history lesson on the setting or to simply relate the events of the plot or summarise the story. State the context(s) you are working with and analyse how they are important to the story/characters and how it influences them.
