Can you help me fix this sentence, i can't word it correctly

This era was struck with poverty, ...etc

How can i write that there was poverty in this era..

  • English -

    There's poverty in every era. Please be more specific.

  • English -

    This era was struck with poverty, living in huts supplied by the lord with low income.

    Struck with poverty <-does that sound wrong?

  • English -

    Those are both wrong.

    "Struck with poverty" is not correct. In addition you have a classic misplaced modifier. Certainly the lord didn't have a low income! Also the era didn't live in huts.

    How about?

    The majority of people lived in poverty.

  • English -

    Oh ok i understand where i went wrong.
    Thank you

  • English -

    You're welcome.
