Character Analysis

Dee (Wangero Kemanjo)

Quote that best represents character: "She's dead," Wangero said. "I couldn't bear it any longer, being named after the people who oppress me."


Type of character: Stock & Static

Explanation/Reasoning: Dee is stock because she is in a sterotypical group, a brat. She wants everything to go her way, her way or the highway. If it doesn't go her way she throws a tantrum.


Type of characterization: Direct

The quote is direct because the reader knows right then that Dee doesn't like being named by the people who oppress her or in other words, she doesn't like the name Dee because her parents named her that.
