Follow the link and read the following story "Girl" by Jamaica Kincaid.
Then, continue the discussion about point of view and characterization, using this piece, "Bullet in the Brain", and/or "The Last Judgment".
For "Girl", a good starting point is to think about "both" characters in this piece and what they are like. But, don't limit your reaction to that.
Overall question: In these pieces, how do the authors create their characters? How do they shift them (the characters) by using other characters, altering the point of view, tone, etc.? What is your overall impression of the work or the characters?
Good luck. Be sure to reference the text when commenting.
(PS - Period Two, since you are little ahead, avoid the temptation to reference the Salinger story.)
