The Characterization of Noah ClaypoleThe process of characterization is that which every author uses to make build or create a character In Oliver Twist the characterization of Noah Claypole is carried out in three ways the author has the character say things that tell the reader what sort of a person he is do things that reveal his personality and the author also has the storyteller describe Noah to expose things concerning his natureHis dialogue characterizes Noah A young man Noah does not speak to his lady kindly at all He is very criticizing Oh there yer are resting againDavies The tone of his speech is intolerant mocking and aggressive all at the same time His violent nature is revealed when he threatens to kick his companion A gentleman would never do such a thing to a lady The use of slang words in his dialogue reflects his social background Furthermore he refers to his lady as a fool This is exceedingly discourteous of him Noah is further characterized by what he does Noah does not respect his companion at all He does not even walk beside her He does not feel guilty for making his lady carry a much heavier luggage Worst of all he paces in advance and occasionally turns to her with an impatient jerk of the head He is a bad-tempered man whose nose grows redder as he gets mad He cannot tolerate the fact that his lady does not urge herself to greater exertion just because she is tired Noah is also characterized by the narrators descriptions The narrator mostly referred to Noah as Mr Claypole This affords the writer the opportunity for considerably harsh comments The contrast of the luggage sizes mentioned allows the reader to assume Noah as a thoughtless man There is irony in the way Davies describes Noah and his lady Davies mentions how Noah wanted to save himself if there were going to be any
