How did Hundert develop or change in The Palace Thief?
Hundert changes in The Palace Thief by developing self-awareness and confessing to his past unethical behavior. These changes are evident in his writing a narrative that reveals his complicity in Sedgewick’s success. Previously, he had hidden the school administration’s role in covering up Sedgewick’s cheating and had blamed his superiors for his actions. By admitting that he acquiesced to the pressure from above, Hundert is finally accepting responsibility for his own actions.
