A character arc is the transformation or development of a character throughout a story and refers to the changes a character undergoes as a result of their experiences, challenges, and interactions with other characters. In the light of the above information, trace the character arc of the thief in Ruskin Bond’s The Thief’s Story, in about 120 words.

 

Answer:

 The thief is the narrator and the protagonist of the story. He is a young and poor boy who makes a living by stealing and cheating. He does not have a name or a family. He does not care about anyone or anything. He is selfish and cynical. đŸŠč‍♂
  •  The thief meets Anil, a kind and generous writer , who offers him a job and a place to stay. The thief accepts the offer, but he does not change his ways. He still steals small amounts of money from Anil and plans to run away with a large sum someday. He does not respect or appreciate Anil. He thinks that Anil is foolish and naive. 🙄
  •  The thief learns to read and write from Anil, who encourages him and praises him. The thief feels happy and proud of his progress. He also feels a sense of belonging and friendship with Anil. He begins to admire and like Anil. He starts to care about him and his work. He develops a conscience and a moral sense. đŸ„°
  •  The thief steals a bundle of notes from Anil's jacket one night and runs away. He feels guilty and ashamed of his betrayal. He realizes that he has lost more than he has gained. He decides to return the money to Anil and face the consequences. He hopes that Anil will forgive him and accept him back. He changes his attitude and values. 🙏

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

The answer is a paragraph that traces the character arc of the thief in Ruskin Bond's The Thief's Story. It is also called a character analysis or a character sketch. 📝

 The answer has four parts : an introduction, three body sentences, and no conclusion. đŸ§©

  •   The introduction is "The thief is the narrator and the protagonist of the story." It introduces the character and his role in the story. It also gives some basic information about him, such as his age, occupation, and background. đŸ—Łïž
  •    The three body sentences  describe the changes that the character undergoes as a result of his experiences, challenges, and interactions with other characters in the story. They also show how these changes affect his emotions, thoughts, actions, and relationships. They also relate to the theme of redemption and transformation in the story. 🔑
  •    There is no conclusion because the answer is not complete yet. The last part of the character arc is missing

 The answer uses transition words to connect the sentences and make them flow smoothly. 💯
