Transcript of Hazel-Grace Lancaster

Hazel Grace Lancaster -The Fault in Our Stars PROTAGONIST "Just before the Miracle, when I was in the ICU and it looked like I was going to die and Mom was telling me it was okay to let go, and I was trying to let go but my lungs kept searching for air, Mom sobbed something into Dad's chest that I wished I hadn't heard, and that I hope she never finds out I did hear. She said ' I won't get to be a mom anymore.' It gutted me pretty badly." (Green 116-117) QUOTE: This shows that Hazel is the main
character struggling with her
battle with cancer. This specific
quote shows how her cancer almost
takes her and how she longs to be
with her family longer. Overall, we
can get the idea that Hazel is
indeed the protagonist of this novel. DYNAMIC "So of course I tensed up when he touched me. To be with him was to hurt him- inevitably. And that's when I felt when he reached for me: I'd felt as though I were committing an act of violence against him, because I was." (Green 101) QUOTE: In the beginning of the novel. Hazel doesn't want to be with Augustus because she feels she is hurting him. Later on though, she finds out that he has a y worse cancer than she does, and in turn, he is doing to her what she feared of doing to him. Hazel then comes to the realization that it doesn't matter if you die in the middle of a relationship, all that matters is the moments you spend together. MOTIVATION "I'm like. Like. I'm like a grenade, Mom.
I'm a grenade and at some point
I'm going to blow up and I would
like to minimize the casualties,
okay?" (Green 99) QUOTE: Hazel is motivated to be as small as possible in the lives of other people. She feels that because she will soon die, she shouldn't be close enough to other people to hurt them. Big and.... ... small ROUND ... small universe devoted to
"We live in a the creation, and eradication, of awareness.
Augustus Waters did not die after a lengthy battle with cancer. He died after a lengthy
battle with human consciousness, a victim - as you will be - of the universe's need to make and unmake all that is possible." (Green 266) Hazel Grace gives more insight into the lives of people than what she sees. Everything and everyone to her has more depth. To her it isn't just life and death, it's an entire struggle. It's an eternal dance in which the universe plays us like puppets, and those who are remembered or forgotten had their chances with human consciousness. THE END
