Character Paper
Write a paper in which you examine the central character from either “Cathedral” or “A&P.” This is not a comparison paper, so choose just ONE character from ONE of the stories for your analysis. You might consider the character’s point of view, strengths, weaknesses and values. In developing your thesis, you might ask yourself: what conflicts does the character face? How does he evolve to overcome his conflict? Does the author use any symbols or imagery that enhances our understanding of the character? What events motivate the character to change? What does the character come to understand? How do you know? Your paper should provide a clear, refined thesis that frames your discussion on character.
