The Sunday Exchange (12/9/18): A Post about a Character You Find Interesting

Sunday Exchange


The Sunday Exchange is a new weekly feature we are introducing at Pages Unbound where we ask you, our readers, to share a post from your own blog that matches the week’s theme.  The goal is to allow you to share posts you are proud of or think other people will find interesting and to help other people find fun posts to read.

This Week’s Theme

Share a Post about a Character You Find Interesting

The “Rules”

  1. Share your post title, the URL of the post, AND a brief explanation of what the post is/why you think people might like to read it in a comment on this blog post.
  2. Try to make the post fit the week’s theme.
  3. Please share only one post each week.
  4. The post does not have to be recent. It can be from any time in your blog’s archives.
  5. Consider visiting some other bloggers’ posts.
  6. We won’t be closing the comments after a week has passed, so *technically* you can still add your post later, but it may not get that much traffic if you share your post a month later.

That’s it! We hope you participate, and check back next Sunday for a new theme and another chance to share!

A Post We Recommend at Pages Unbound

Classic Remarks: Severus Snape

This post explores the revelations made about Snape’s character in the final installment of J. K Rowling’s Harry Potter series.  I’m hesitant to say more because, well, is it still possible to spoil Harry Potter?

    “Captain America, Black Lives Matter, and the Systemic Sin of Racism”

    A few years ago, Steve Rogers lost his Super Soldier Serum and powers. After his body rapidly aged, he asked Sam Wilson (the Falcon) to become Captain America in his stead. I LOVED Sam Wilson as Cap and I respected how author Nick Spencer used him to explore all sorts of political issues, our country’s “original sin” of racism being chief among them.

    «Glorfindel: the Power of White Light”

    When we meet Glorfindel in The Lord of the Rings, we perceive that he is not a common Elf. In this essay I’m exploring the origin of his inner power and why the Nazgûl are so scared of him. To me Glorfindel is one of those incredible examples in Tolkien’s work who makes a brief appearance, but leaves a long-lasting impression and has a richer story than this brief appearance can convey to readers. It’s always interesting to explore such characters’ stories.

    Here’s an older post of mine which looks at how the French poet François Villon is depicted in the 1938 film “If I We King,” and how he relates to ideal of the politically engaged poet that Walt Whitman extols in the preface to the 1855 edition of “Leaves of Grass.”

    I don’t think I’ve ever written a post about just one character, though many of my reviews explore characters. One review was about what a bit dumpster fire this one character was and how the book should never have been written! Do you think writing about a single character only works with famous books?

      Oh dear! That sounds like quite the book!

      I do think that writing about specific books can be difficult since you’re not likely to get as many views if people aren’t familiar with the book. Snape works nicely because such a large number of people know and love the Harry Potter books. But I wrote about Sydney Carton once and there was seemingly a dearth of a Tale of Two Cities fans around that day!
