In the short story, “Geraldine Moore the Poet,” by Toni Cade Bambara, Geraldine Moore was the protagonist and lived in a poor neighborhood. Moore can be best described as perseverant and resilient. This was due to how she looked, acted, and felt about things. First of all, Moore was evicted from her home one day. The text states, “Geraldine was almost home when she stopped dead. Right outside her building was a pile of furniture and some boxes. That wasn’t anything new” (Bambara 1). This conveys that Moore was perseverant because she didn’t give up when she found out she was evicted. She brushed off the event and continued to live her life, living with Miss Gladys. The author developed Moore’s character by using indirect characterization.
