Character Role Analysis


Monica is a mama to her boy through thick and thin. A paragon of virtue, which is a good thing to have on your muse-resume, Monica is relentless in her efforts to save Augustine's soul. From the way Augustine talks about her, we can tell that he clearly admires her, and that she serves as an inspiration to him. Like all good muses do. Thanks for everything, Muse Mother.
