Think about each character's definition of success in "The First Seven Years" by Bernard Malamud. What does the story suggest about success? A person's level of education determines his or her success. Success and happiness are two similar ideas. Success is determined by how much money you have. There is more than one way to measure success.

    There is more than one way to measure success.


    From the book, The First Seven Years by Bernard Malamud, there is a prevailing theme that success is not measured in one way.

    Mr Feld wants his daughter Miriam to get married to Max who he feels is of a good social status, but they eventually don't work out. Eventually, Sobel, Feld's assistant in the store ends up marrying Miriam even though Feld doesn't consider him of a good social standing (at first).
