Teacher; So it was about money. We agree on that. Now, which characters you like or dislike in the book?

 

Nina:   I think, the book has several very deep characters, the ones that evolve   and   many rather shallow ones,  created   there just to prove the point.   Such   characters like Uncle Tom, Augustine St. Clare, his cousin Ophelia,   George and Elisa, Cassy, Evangeline and   Simon Legree are   more "lively' than Shelby, Marie,   slave- traders and   many others.

Teacher: That's interesting. Why a little girl is   a   deep character?

Natasha; I think I know.   Evangeline   is perfectly natural.   Girls her age are very much like that when they are   brought up    by loving   fathers. I know such families. In fact,   the father's influence   is very important. Eva really loves   Tom and others- she does not   make a difference between the races and also influences others that way.

 

Kolya. Yes, and Shelby is just a good man, Marks is just a villain like on   the illustrations. Legree   though is a   sort of   an antagonist to Tom.

 

 

Teacher:   So Tom is a protagonist, a   driving character. Why?

Nina: He is consistent.   He   evolves, acquires   knowledge but does   not change as a personality.   Whatever Tom does   he does naturally -- he   is   intrinsically   and perfectly   honest whether he   saves Eva or    refuses to flog a woman Lucy. He   has internal dignity.
