Donna Tartt’s The Secret History tells the story of Richard Papen’s transfer from a small college in his hometown Plano, California, to an elite college in Vermont, Hampden College. During his first week, he becomes obsessively captivated by the five students in a highly selective Greek class and goes to extreme lengths to be accepted by the group’s members Henry Winter, Bunny Corcoran, Francis Abernathy, twins Charles and Camilla Macaulay, and their teacher Julian Morrow. This obsession and desire to please causes Richard’s involvement in two murders that distort his idea of morality.

I have chosen to analyze the narrator, Richard Papen, the group leader, Henry Winter, and the only major female character, Camilla Macaulay.
