Be sure to follow the guidelines for a proper character analysis. The paper should be two pages (typed) in MLA format. Points are taken off for MLA format. Refer to the text or the Purdue Owl website if you need a refresher. Guidelines: 1) Pay attention to the characters ethics. Does the character make just or unjust choices? 2) Decide whether the characters actions are wise or unwise. 3) What is the characters motivation? As you are mulling over the pros and cons of each characters internal thoughts and external actions, you will want to also consider why the character is acting or thinking in a particular way. Has the author given you any clues about the characters past? 4) Consider the effects of the characters behavior on other characters. 5) Look for repeatedly used words that describe the character. Those words often give insight into a characters psychology and motivations. 6) Be aware of items associated with the character. They may say something about his or her state of mind. 7) Read between the lines. Often what a character does not say is as important as what he or she does say. 8) Is the character flat or round? A character is considered flat (or static) when he or she does not experience change of any kind, does not grow from beginning to end. Round characters are those who do experience some sort of growth. 9) Consider the historical time period of the character. Refrain from making modern judgments about the past; put the characters actions and thoughts in context. 10) Finally, what does the author think? Look for any of the authors own judgments about the characters he or she has created. The author may be directing you toward an intended interpretations.
