If you were a character from litterature...

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
After the theme song thread, how about the character from litterature (or the movies if you prefer) you feel has most in common with you? For me, it would have to be Madame Olenska from "The Age of Innocence" by Edith Wharton. Some of you might have seen Michelle Pfeiffer in the role.

I'd be Robert Evans from The Kid Stays In The Picture. Not literature, but what a life.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who'll say Rob from Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity." It's funny, because my girlfriend despises that character. Go figure.

Hiro Protagonist - Snow Crash or Ian Malcom - Jurassic Park Not really 'literature' per se, but two badass mofo's regardless.

A mixture of Ignatius Rielly from A Confederacy of Dunes, Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's and Charlie Brown.

I'd like to say Michael Corleone, but probably am closer to Fredo with the temper of Sonny.  Dammit. Actually, the Nick Hornby protagonist from "About a Boy" is probably the most accurate.  Just don't tell my fiancee. I'd like to say Pierre from that War and Peace book by that Russian fellow. But we About a Boy protagonists read only fashion and popular music magazines and watch television. Occasionally, we watch The Fifth (fourth?) Estate for a little education.

Please don't post a picture. Solid characters.

I would love to be any character from Douglas Coupland's Generation X. Good god, I could be happy if I was ANY Douglas Coupland character. I think I'm in love with all of them.

Encylopedia Brown was such a tool. If you ever go back and skim through the stories, you'll realize what I'm talking about. You could subdivide whether or not a character was good or bad simply by looking at whether or not these fourth and fifth graders were willing to work during their summer vacations. If they didn't do any work, they were cast as mean, bad, spoiled, etc.. But, if they did all the work for a quarter, then they were held up as heroes to emulate.
