Charles Baxter Authors often write differently in novels then in short stories This isnt always the case but most times it is Charles Baxter writes pretty much the same way in his novels as he does in his short stories In all of Baxters stories there is always an element of realistic features Theres always something you think could happen to you Baxter takes real life events but always adds a little twist to plot to intrigue the reader He is known across America for doing this His stories are very simple to read and there is never a lot going on but I guess that means that his work are meant for everybody to read For this essay I plan to compare his novels and his short stories in different elements I will explain hoe most of his characters are very similar to each other I will continue to compare his novels and short stories by comparing the many different plots he uses I will then compare his sixth sense of description he uses throughout all of his works When I am done you can decide if his writing differs from novels to short stories All fictional characters have certain qualities within themselves that no one else has This is not always true Most of Baxters characters are all different in one way but yet are all very similar Almost all of Baxters characters have a desperate need to find peace in themselves In Kiss Away Jodie seems to be not able to trust Walton after her encounter with Gleinya which makes me believe that she had been hurt before in the past although we are never told this in the story The same thing is seen in Stained Glass where Donna doesnt believe she can stay with Bobby but after se received his stained glass portrait she forgave him and went back with him ignoring his violent temper In First Light Dorsey
