In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Throughout the works of literature, there constantly appear certain characters who, although merely products of an author's imaginative pen, make such a profound impression at first meeting that they live on further within the mind of the reader. They are those who are deliberately molded in such a way as to emphasize either main, or lesser, themes of a work solely by their own motivations and actions, as if divorced from all other activity. In this way, the theme itself, personified in the character, becomes an unforgettable rondo, playing itself again and again in our memory."
