Anna has been employed to educate the king's fifty-eight children. She knows very little of King Mongkut, apart from the fact that his people revere him as a god. She brings with her an 'East vs. West' prejudice against the king, considering him to be uncivilized. She soon realizes that her views are more than matched by the ruler's own preconceptions about the West and particularly this impertinent Englishwoman.
But over time, Anna and the King share a growing connection. Anna discovers that Mongkut is a true man of vision who is leading Siam to take its place among the nations of the modem world. And the King recognizes that Anna has shined a light not only on him and his family, but on Siam itself.blog comments powered by Disqus
