* Essay Topic: In some works of literature, a character who appears briefly, or does not appear at all, is a significant presence. Write an essay in which you show how such a character functions in the work. You may select novels or plays of a certain literary merit, written in English. Avoid plot summary.




Some characters in literary works do not appear in their physical forms, but only in names and quotations. However, in some cases these characters play an ultimate role which changes the protagonists forever. Some of these characters could be Mr. Wingfield from Tennessee Williams’ play, The Glass Menagerie, and Goldstein, a part-imaginary rebel character in George Orwell’s 1984. These characters all do do not appear in their physical forms but affect the course of the story.

Mr. Wingfield, in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, does not appear on the scene at all. He had abandoned his family and ran away to live a better life. However, his departure changed the entire family’s fate. Unable to perceive reality, the members of the Wingfield family held false hopes that Mr. Wingfield would come back. Because of his departure, the family became insolvent and gradually separated themselves from reality. His abandonment had a direct influence on Tom Wingfield’s abandonment of the family, and more important, the entire family’s desertion from the real world.

Goldstein, in George Orwell’s novel 1984, also plays a great role without appearing as a real person. He is accused by the party of being a member of the underground rebellion, although there was no direct evidence to prove his guilt. His presence was a great tool for the party’s brainwashing of the people, because the existence of Goldstein brings fear and dependence to the party into the people’s hearts. Not only does Goldstein injects fear into many people’s mind, he also fuels a thought of resistance into Winston Smith. Through him, he ponders whether the party is guiding the citizens correctly or not.

Both Mr. Wingfield and Goldstein play a prominent role in the stories without presenting themselves in tangible form. Although he is only represented as a picture hung on a wall, Mr. Wingfield’s abandonment of the family eventually brings the ultimate breakdown of the Wingfield family. Likewise, Goldstein is only shown through the telescreen a few times a day, he becomes a symbol of fear and hate to the ordinary citizens and an initiator of doubt to Winston Smith. Their influence surely rivals those of visible characters.
