Summary 'Characters' are those fictive beings in novels whose coherent patterns of behaviour make them credible as people. 'Character' is also used to refer to the capacity - or incapacity - to sustain one's core principles. What is behind this esteem for unwavering consistency? 'Out of Character' examines literary characters who test and defy our culture's models of personal integrity
