Summary: Count That Day Lost by George Eliot is a poem about going beyond the care and concern for oneself to make someone else happy in order to make a day worth while
Speaker - Narrator of the poem
- At the end of the day, if you have done one unselfish act to bring "sunshine where it went" then the day was worth the time that one had spent
- On the otherhand, if the count of any unselfish deeds is zero, then the speaker can say that day is "worse than lost" for there was no "sunshine"
- George Eliot was English and wrote about relationships
- One drop of "sunshine" would light up many a person's day and make living on Earth much more than it is if it were to be performed once a day at the very least
