There are so many ways and reasons that people can change. You can change for love, passion, or to fit in. There are many more things that can change a person. I’m taking two stories and looking if the characters changed or stayed the same.
Everybody changes throughout life, either it from being around certain people, having people persuade you into doing something, or by seeing a certain event happen. Everyone goes through a type of change that can make a big difference in their life. I argue that people in the play “Witness” by Karen Hesse can change from being around others because Sara Chickering changed from being around the Hirsh’s, Viola ended up joining the KKK because of her husband pressuring her to, and Merlin by seeing Leanora saving Ester.
The character that seemed to show the most change throughout the novel is Izzy Richardson. She is the youngest of the three Richardson children living in Shaker Heights, Ohio. The town is like a utopia. A place where everything appears to be perfect and the rules are never broken. In the first chapter of the novel it is revealed that Izzy has set the Richardson home on fire and disappeared, yet the audience is unaware of the reasons that she has done this. The narrator begins to describe Izzy from the minds of the family and neighbors, and obviously they don’t think very highly of her describing her as a “lunatic,” “the black sheep,” and “the wild card.” (Ng, 13) She is a very unique character who does not adhere to the rules of her traditional family. The words that are used to describe Izzy are very telling of where the oppression stems from. She is oppressed by this idea of what her parents and family want her to be. After Mrs. Richardson signed Izzy up for dance classes, she wrote “NOT YOUR PUPPET” on her forehead. (Ng, 45) From a young age, it was clear that Izzy was dying to escape the confines of her materialistic family. She makes it clear that she cannot be controlled by this idea of what her parents want her to become. Izzy acknowledged that the people in Shaker Heights
A natural tendency is for characters to change and develop throughout a story as it progresses. A character can develop from A kind personality to a angry personality. For instance how Scrooge changes from greedy and cruel to selfless in A Christmas Carol. When Scrooge is put through a series of test to see what life is like outside of his shell, his demenur on life changes. ALthough characters can also change in a negative way. Scrooge's gradual change in attitude from selfishness to selfless conveys the theme, the populace has the power to change their ways no matter how distasteful their actions once were.
Everyone adjusts to change differently. For example, the character Lou Ann, had a baby and her husband left her. There are several ways that she could have handled it. On one hand she could have said, ?To heck with him, good riddance.? But she chose to take it hard, she slipped into a form of depression and was easily pushed around by others, because she was afraid of them leaving her if they got mad. Taylor helped her change all that.
Change can be seen as a form of transformation or conversion. A form of change can be seen in “Victory Lap” by George Saunders, a short story written in such a way that the events that are enrolling throughout the story are being processed and told through the minds of three main characters. Having the perspective of each character allows us, the readers to get a much greater understanding about them and to make a better character analysis. Having said that, this story is simply about a girl, Alison getting kidnapped by an unnamed kidnapper. What were really captivating were the changes spotted on characters as the conflict progresses. One character in particular is very intriguing and his name is Kyle. One of our main character, Alison
Characters will change and develop throughout a story in several ways. Whether we see a character changing their routine, or changing a relationship, a character’s development is an important part of any fictional story. Many characters will develop in a way that is relatable to the readers life, whish is one of the purposes of authors creating certain characters. Many readers need a character to relate to his/her life to remain interested to see how the character will develop and maybe apply the development to his/her own life.

In the story none of them really changed physically but all of them saw themselves differently by the end of the story. One of those characters who has changed the most is Bobby Goodspeed. As we have seen, Bobby has got picked on a lot throughout his life and doesn’t have a lot of respect towards anyone. Since Bobby has been picked on, he doesn’t respect himself.
this was the case with this story as it was through the eyes of Charlie and how Charlie saw his father, therefore limiting the characters exposure to being nothing other than a father. this caused a restraint when trying to get to know Wesley in more depth as a s Towards the end of the novel my character, i would say, stays the same for the most part. he is forced into a different situation by Ruth’s betrayal but handles it how he would’ve at the start of the novel. he takes it as its given and continues to be there for Charlie, just as he was at the start of the
