BOOK CLUB: Today's Greek Chorus (Ch. 25)

[Today we're reading Ch. 25 How to Cheat If You Can't Hire a Whole Chorus, by Michael Tierno (2002).]

Greek chorus was used to "make[] moral comments on what is happening by raising questions." A modern chorus could be a secondary character.

I've never really looked at minor characters this way, but it's a good thing to have in your back pocket.

WHAT I’VE LEARNED: If you need to debate the morality of a situation, let your minor character speak up.
