Character Role Analysis

Anse (sort of)

By now you’ve probably guessed that there are no clear-cut roles in As I Lay Dying. But Anse comes closest to being That Guy We Hate. Anse is selfish and rather directly stands in between his children and their various dreams: Jewel and his horse, Dewey Dell and her abortion, Cash and his graphophone.
