Character Analysis

Write an essay analyzing one of the following characters:
The narrator or Sonny in James Baldwin’s “Sonny’s Blues”

You will want to analyze the character using his/her main trait. Pick at least 3 aspects to help
you structure your essay. If the character grows in the course of the story, then you have a
choice of two essay structures. One structure allows you to set the essay up where in the first
third of the essay you will prove the trait he/she starts with, in the second third you show
transition, and in the last section you prove the trait he/she ends with. Or a second structure is
where you pick three or so aspects, and with each aspect you show beginning, middle, and end
of the change of one trait to another.

1. Appearance: what details of appearance suggest the character’s main trait?
2. Name: does the definition or connotation of the name suggest trait?
3. Speech: does the way the character talks or does what the character says suggest
anything about him/her? What about the comments the character does not make?
4. Behavior: in what ways do the character’s actions reveal his/her main trait?
5. Thoughts and Emotions: how do the character’s thoughts and emotions help the reader
understand his/her main trait?
6. Biography: how is the main trait of the character suggested by biographical details?
7. Statements and Reflections of Other Characters: in what ways do the other characters
in the story reveal the main trait of the character?
8. Images and Symbols: what does the consistent use of images or a symbol tell us about
the character’s main trait?
In order to develop your character analysis you will need to pick 3 or more supporting examples
for each aspect of the character you use. You will want to paraphrase most of your examples
and quote only those that you feel are most relevant. To help you restrain yourself, let us say
that you will quote no more than twice. Set up each example – lead into it clearly – then
explain how it proves your trait before you move on to the next example. Your only source will
be the short story.
