The novelist and philosopher William H. Gass noticed in his dual roles that philosophical concepts and literary characters have one thing in common: They are both made up of words. Write an essay focusing on characters from three works we have read ( I wrote three books below) which examines how the authors of these works create their characters. How do the authors differ? How are they similar? How much does each author leave to the readers’ imaginations? Feel free to draw on your own experience to make you point. A good paper will show how each respective author invites the reader to participate in the poem/story being created, and it will do this by focusing on concrete details from the text that define the characters.
It is important to avoid summarizing the plots of three stories
1. Human Landscapes from My Country by Nazim Hikmet.
2. Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov
3. Everything and Nothing by Jorge Luis Borges
