This paper presents a discussion about three stories and the identities of the protagonists. The writer of this paper examines "Doll House", "Oedipus" and "Hamlet" to compare and contrast the identity complexities in each instance.
From the Paper:"Many times an author becomes so involved with the character of the work that they go on a mission of self-discovery along with the character. While the reader watches the events unfold we also are treated to the character discovering in the end that they really are. It is a common theme that is not easily noticed until one peels of the topcoat of the story and examines the underpinnings."
