1. Literary character is built on dramatic need. In other words, what a character wants reveals a lot about that character. Use this idea to form an essay about one character from a story on our reading list. Think about exactly what it is the character needs. Think about why that character needs what he or she needs. Think about what is getting in the way of the character getting what he or she desires so much. 2. From a short story on your reading list, choose a character (not necessarily the protagonist) whose mind is pulled in conflicting directions by two compelling desires, ambitions, or obligations.

Conclude your essay by showing how this conflict illuminates the meaning of the short story as a whole. 3 . Deceit is something that all humans take part in. From

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
