Character Study Paper (5 pages)
Choose one character in the list below and a moment when the author makes this character’s actions especially striking, revealing, or meaningful. Draw on your skills of close reading and analysis –
delve into the character’s traits, thoughts, words, feelings, emotions, past & future, as well as influences on him/her
examine the scene’s details for evidence of significant implications of the character’s behavior in relation to the moral of the story
use direct evidence or quotations from the text to support your analysis
Use these questions to get started:
What does the narrator or the author tell us about the character at this moment? What does he or she leave out?
What does the character say for himself or herself? Does the character use words, gestures, objects, silences, or other means to communicate?
How does the character’s behavior at this moment reflect or distract from his or her true intentions? How does the author make us aware of what those intentions are? In what ways and to what effect might the character seem to be playing a part?
How do markers of dress, gender, race, profession, nation, or class communicate in place of words? What are the significances of these external markers?
How does the character’s behavior in this scene reflect upon the themes or issues elsewhere in the text? (You don’t have to cover all possible themes or the whole text.)
You are welcome but not required to do outside research for this essay, but do include a Works Cited list and correct documentation for your text and quotations.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
