    The typical fictional protagonist is a dynamic, likeable and awe-inspiring character. Someone you could be proud of in the end, someone you wish you knew or could be. That is the sort of person one might have expected Mr. William Hundert, main protagonist of the short story “The Palace Theif” in the book, The Palace Thief, by Ethan Canin, to be. That expectation is supported by the fact that Hundert started out as a moral-driven, passionate, school- and student-loving teacher and antiquarian.…
