Just Like Hughes

"Like all human beings, literary characters do not exist in isolation. Just as they became human by interacting with other characters, they gain identity because of their cultural and political allegiances, their possessions, their jobs, where they live, and move, and have their being" (Roberts 109).

            This reminds me so much of my blog on Hughes' "Theme for English B". People are sculpted and somewhat defined by their surroundings. In my blog on Hughes' "Theme" I focused more on the idea of real life people being sculpted by their surroundings as opposed to literary characters. I really like how the quote above demonstrates this concept in literary figures as well as real life people.
