To begin, a character doesn’t need to play a major part in something to cause an immense difference in the outcome of the story. In other words, Clarisse only appeared a few times in the beginning of the novel and she was the only one that was openly trying to change people’s views of what the society was doing. “You laugh
With a plethora of books on varying subject matters, the world of literature is almost endless. Quality books and authors often camouflage further meaning behind a character, theme or symbol providing a treasure for readers willing to search. Ray Bradbury includes a hidden treasure in his novel Fahrenheit 451 by contrasting two of his main characters. The overall message of the story describes a futuristic society with many technological advancements, and the prohibition of books, where Ray Bradbury shows how devastating a society is with mindless technology and lack of quality literature and interactions. However, by exploring the juxtaposition between the characters Mildred and Clarisse, a further meaning can be found through their differing
A specific example of this is in Nazario’s “Enrique’s Journey.” In this book a boy named Enrique goes through extraordinary events to reach his goal.

Characters can change a great deal throughout the course of a story. Based off of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," we see just how much a character will change. There are many reasons for the character shift (undergoes an inner change) that are left up for our interpretation, which can be read about in The Theory Toolbox. In "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," the grandma undergoes a great deal of shifting in her character. The grandma could also be recognized as being the protagonist of the story and as a round character (Hamilton 137 & 141).
The common trait that defines these individuals as hero archetypes is that they all undergo a quest at some point in the story, which involves a separation, transformation, and return. Throughout the novel, we see characters like this always present; without them, prosperity and greatness would never be achievable due to pernicious forces like William Hamleigh or Bishop Waleran reigning down on the innocent. The theme that hero archetypes are always necessary in order for society to function properly, is constantly developed in The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, and can be demonstrated through the actions of both Jack and Richard. Throughout the novel, Jack Jackson continuously performs actions that improve society. The heroic actions performed by Jack commence at a very young age.
This greatly affects the novel in many ways. Throughout the novel, the protagonist, Thomas, meets new characters who know exactly what happened to the Earth. If this point of view was omniscient, we may have found out more information about it, instead it gives the novel more mystery. This point of view also leaves questions about the characters that have been separated. For example,
In the novel In Cold Blood, Truman Capote provides so much information about Perry than any other character. Within the novel, Capote expands so much interest in Perry’s personalities and it develops throughout the novel. Capote believes there is still some good in Perry, and this is what makes the reader so obsessed with Perry. Also, the author portrays Perry as a victim of circumstance as seen through the inclusion of his abusive childhood background, his vulnerabilities and crush dream, which is why he makes such a great
In society it seems that everyone has to be the exact same, and if you aren't then you are an out cast. Most people don't necessarily like the thought of being different from everyone else because it could lead to bigger events that could cause more harm in the future. Mark Twain being the phenomenal writer he is wrote a book that idea of blending in and adapting to your surroundings to a whole new level with writing his book Pudd'nhead Wilson.
