The Red Pony

The Red Pony

  

by John Steinbeck

Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

Fate

If there is an antagonist at all in The Red Pony, it is Fate. That cruel mistress throws some pretty hard life curveballs at the Tiflins and each character must learn to best handle the hand they're dealt. Sometimes life doesn't seem fair (two dead horses in one book?!), but hey, that's fate, Shmoopers.
