The man is the protagonist of the story. The man is sneaky,nervous, paranoid and a murderer.the man is a flat character because you never really know much about him. The man is dynamic because he wanted to kill the man in the begging of the story but at the end he tells the police that he killed the old man because he cant hold it in anymore.
The old man is the antagonist olf the story. The old man is scared, mysterious, wealthy. The old man is a very flat character because we really know nothing about him. The old man is static because he stays the same throughout the entire story.
¨Suddenly the old man sat straight up in bed and cried, ¨who´s there??!¨ I stood quite still. For a whole hour, I did not move. Nor did I hear him again lie down in his bed. He just sat there, listening. Then I heard a sound, a low cry of fear which escaped from the old man¨. This shows good imagery of the old man's fear of what is to come from his dark bedroom.
