You need to have a thorough understanding of the characters within The City of God and be able to illustrate your understanding with examples.
To be able to discuss character you need examples of:
- What they say
- What other people say about them (especially the narrator(Rocket))
- What they do
- What they look like
- Their character ‘journeys’
- What they say about The City (of God) (especially the narrator)
You should also include your thoughts on their function in the narrative; what role do they play and what themes do they illustrate?
In small groups please complete a character profile for:
- Li’l Zé
- Knockout Ned
- The Runts
Place your image in the center of an A3 piece of paper and surround it with quotes, images, examples of behaviour, stages in their narrative journey.
