“Money is not the only answer, but it makes a great difference” - Barack Obama. As a resident of Liverpool, Willy Russell decided to publish blood brothers with music in it as he was a part time composer. His attitudes towards different people differed, and therefore he needed to include this factor which drastically changes people’s life. The twins, Mickey and Edward, grew up with a completely opposite background which mostly differed through wealth. Russell portrayed money as a factor that shaped people’s characteristics to demonstrate the power prosperity has in the world. The author establishes parallel relationships, and hyperbole to keep money as a significant subject.
