Character Development

Choose one of the short stories in the required reading.
Reflect and respond to one of the short stories you read by selecting one of the following prompts:

  • Imagine that you could become an omniscient character in any of the pieces you have read and could change
    the plot somehow. Describe the piece of literature in which the character belongs, and how that character
    would alter the plot. Use details from the piece to note how the plot might change.
  • Using a short story that you read in this unit, analyze a character who begins as a minor character, but
    evolves into a major character with an important role as the story progresses.
  • Using a short story with which you are familiar, examine how one character influences other characters to
    change.
  • Examine a character who embodies a dark mood.
  • Examine a character who goes through a complete mental breakdown as the story progresses.
  • Examine the attributes of a determined character.
    You should work on answering the question as it relates to the story. How you answer the initial question in the
    introduction will help you to develop your thesis. There is no need to include a summary of the story, as your
    instructor has read the stories; instead, focus on writing a reader-response essay.
