I have to choose 3 characters from each book to
compare and contrast, so far I have Gertrude and Daisy
who else can I compare to show that characters conceal their real
identity to be excepted as good in society
Hamlet and Gatsby
Hamlet acts crazy to trys and kill Claudius thus concealing his real desire to kill Claudius from everyone.
Gatsby acts like he has always had money when he is trying to hide that he was poor at one time to get revenge and get Daisy back.
would jordan and claudious
be a good comparison
for a this thesis
"human beings do not always portray their real identities, rather they appear to be someone their society deems apporiate
my strategy is like this: Write about the characters you understand the best, and search for points of comparison and contrast. You can relate any three people in any stories.
The trick is to relate all characters to a common concept... a concept that glues them all together. It does not have to be something they all have in common... just something they can all be discussed in relation to.
