Rabbit, Run

Rabbit, Run

by John Updike

Mr. Earl Angstrom

Character Analysis

We don’t get much information about Earl Angstrom, though we know he and Rabbit’s mother used to fight, and that he is a printer. He does not forgive Rabbit for leaving Janice, even before the death of Rebecca June. He says Rabbit became his enemy that night. When he argues with Mrs. Angstrom, he comes off as not quite as logical as Mrs. Angstrom, though she seems to feel bad about always being able to beat him in an argument.
