Did you know in the story The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane Edward is a dynamic character? Here are some reasons why. First, in the beginning of the book Edward thinks Pellgrina is telling weird stories, but at the end Edward seems to get the stories Pellgrina. Pellgrina’s stories were about love and care. Next, on the boat, when Edward got thrown off of the boat he only cared about his hat. Closer to the end Edward did not care how he looked. He just wanted to be loved. Finally, when he got to Nellie’s house Edward did not want another girl. He wanted Abilene. After a while at Nellie’s house Edward just wanted someone. That is why I think Edward is a dynamic character.
This is a great blog post! Just remember page numbers! Great job!
In The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, I think Edward is a dynamic character because he changes from being an unloving and uncaring rabbit to being a loving and caring rabbit. For example, on page 47, he asks himself,’ Is my hat still on my head?’ Also, on page 49, he thought, ‘My pocket watch. I need that.’ Then, on page 57, after Lawrence catches him,’ He was glad to be alive.’ This shows that he changes from only caring about silly things, like if his clothes are on, to being grateful that he’s alive. Another example is on page 69 continuing on to page 70 when he was at Lawrence and Nellie’s house. ‘He was horrified at first. He was, after all, a boy rabbit. He did not want to be dressed as a girl. And the outfits, even the special-occasion dress, were so simple, so plain. They lacked the elegance and artistry of his real clothes. But then Edward remembered lying on the ocean floor, the muck in his face, the stars so far away, he said to himself, what difference does it really make? Wearing a dress won’t hurt me.’ This shows that Edward goes from only caring about what he wears to getting over it and being grateful that he’s not in the ocean. My last example is on page 38. ‘He wished that she would not hold him so tight. To be clutched so fiercely often resulted of wrinkled clothing.’ Then, on page 141, the book says,’ Sometimes, when a coughing fit was particularly bad, she squeezed Edward so tight that he was afraid he would crack in two. Also, in between coughing fits, she took to sucking on one or the other of Edward’s ears. Normally, Edward would have found intrusive, clingy behavior of this sort very annoying, but there was something about Sarah Ruth. He wanted to take care of her. He wanted to protect her. He wanted to do more for her.’ This means that Edward goes from only caring about himself to caring about other people (Sarah Ruth). As you can see, Edward is a dynamic character because he goes from being unloving and uncaring to loving and caring.
That was really descriptive, Reagan.
I think Edward is a dynamic character. In the beginning, Edward was a pampered little brat of a china doll. He didn't even care about Abilene, who had supplied him with a wardrobe full of clothes. Now, that he has met new people, he has become a happy and loving rabbit.
