In the stories you have read in Chapters 4-7, you have
been introduced to several kinds of characters. Using a story that is
different than the one you analyzed in the Literary Techniques and Their
Connection to Conflict in Literature discussion, describe a character
you sympathize with by answering the following questions:
Why did this character interest you? What
choices does the character make, and how do the choices (or the result
of the choices) contribute to the theme of the story?
What kind of conflict (internal/external) did this character encounter, and how did he/she handle it?
How does the setting contribute to the character’s development?
How does the setting contribute to the character’s experience and give the story more meaning?
