City of God Character Profile

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:

  • Rocket
  • Li’l Zé
  • Bené
  • 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.
