It is difficult to distinguish what is good and bad, and as a result, there is much confusion amongst the characters. Even Benedick deceiving himself is not clearly one or the other. While his protections are to keep his heart safe, he comes off as arrogant and plays into the stereotype of a typical single man. In protecting himself, he hurts others. Benedick constantly belittles Claudio for wanting to give up life as a stag soldier, and it is implied that Benedick had caused Beatrice pain in a previous courtship, perhaps turning her to her anti-marital sentiments.
In “Travis, B,” Chet struggles with envy and his own feelings of inadequacy. In “Spy vs Spy,” the characters also struggle with insecurities and fears that actual imperil their lives. Both stories use violence as a kind of delivery device for the idea that people’s fear often harm them more than the objects of fear themselves, and both stories use quietly dramatic internal resolutions to show how people struggle and how they face their own fears.

The only difference between the two is that Meursault discovers that even though he believes that the world manipulated him and demanded to kill the

As for what kind of character I believe Ralph is, I believe he is a dynamic character because he does change in his physical appearance(being
