There is a great article linked below that kind of supports the opposite view, and how the characters in this novel really aren't the underdogs because of their complacency in the occurrences in their own lives. I can see the part of the definition that reads...... "tend to have power over themselves later on in life," but I see that power as having achieved peace within themselves rather than power over themselves.
