Jessica Norrie with her post this week… hunt the MC… she shares some excellent examples of books where you might be forgiven for wondering who is the main character… fascinating from both a writing and reading perspective.
How hard can it be to find the main character (MC) in a novel? No prizes for David Copperfield, Jane Eyre, Mrs Dalloway. Playwrights may play tricks: Julius Caesar dies in Act 1, we’re left Waiting for Godot who may not even exist, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. But novels are easy.
Or are they? Even the classics can fool us. Are the four Little Women equally important? As an avid bookworm and would-be writer I should have identified with Jo, but the recent very good film confirmed what I’d suspected since childhood. Amy leads the pack.
Head over to enjoy the post in full.. thanks Sally.
