Classics Characters

In this page, you will find my analysis of random characters from classic books I've read. Normally I will pick 1-2 characters from each book. Originally, they will be posted for my Character Thursday weekly meme, but after the blog hop ended, I will update the post to focus on the analysis. I have just started this analysis recently, so you probably won't find characters of some books I have read before running this analysis project.
