What is a good charcter sketch for Miss Brill?
1 Answer | Add Yours
For starters, give a physical description of the character. She's middle aged and thinks that she is well dressed and fashionable. This initial presentation of her is merely a facade and we learn that she is a rather tired and deluded character.
Another area to look at is her clothing and what this represents about her. Her personality is directly reflected by what she wears and her internal dialogue shows us that Miss Brill verges on arrogant.
By the end of the story, she realises that she is far from a glamorous player in the game of life, rather she is insulted by a young couple who look down upon her. She is dull and alone.
