Alex Roth Per 3The main protagonist or main character in a story changes hisher characters and beliefs throughout the many different trials that they persevere though In the book Worlds Fair by EL Doctorow the protagonist of the story is a young typically Jewish boy by the name of Edgar The book takes place in 1930s post-depression New York and Edgars family is in somewhat tumultuous times Edgar is very young at the beginning of the book his brother is a young teen and his parents are both middle aged The way Edgar explains his early years show how his character deals with things and how he does so is very apparent throughout the entire book For example he portrays his parents as elements warring with each other on a much grandeur scale than two mere mortals could even conceive to argue upon He treats everything deeper than what they actually are much like any kid his tender age would do He is a caring person that is very aware of everything as a child and was disciplined very harshly by his mother Rose Edgars mom believed pain was a curative If it didnt hurt it wasnt affective She was a typical Jewish mom of that era and reminds me much of my own mother and my Grandmother He thought many things as a child he even thought that the weather of the day depended on his mothers mood This belief becomes more of a metaphor for Edgar as he grows up in the pages of the bookEdgars character in the first part of the book represents a caring inquisitive lonesome and very conscientious boy An example of his attentive nature can be found at the very beginning pages of the book In these pages Edgar constructs a fort under the Kitchen table He got used to seeing all of his family members by legs and feet
