Dear JohnNicholas SparksSubmitted to:Mrs. Rosela AngeloSubmitted by:Ethel Marti D. SenatoSynopsisAn angry rebel, Special Forces Army Sergeant John Tyree, dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life-until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. He comes home in a two-week leave from Germany; their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who has captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything; John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear ...view middle of the document...

Mr. Tyree - Mr. Tyree is John's dad. He is a coin collector and owns over hundreds of coins. He was the one that raised John since John's mother left them when John was still little.Tim Wheddon - Tim is a family friend of Savannah's. He has a younger brother, Alan, who has autism. He is the one who brought Savannah down to Whilmington in the summer, which happened to be when John was on leave. In the later part of the story, he married Savannah but he is ailing.Short Story AnalysisTITLEDear JohnThe story was entitled "Dear John" because it interjects the readers to the point of the story where Savannah writes a letter to John that starts with "Dear John"; and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Such a letter often began with a formal or perfunctory greeting, not the usual "My Dearest John" or "My Sweet Darling," which served to let the recipient brace himself for bad news. The contents of the Dear John letter would also be direct and detached: "I have met someone else since you've been away, and I believe it would be best if you and I agreed to part company."AUTHORNicholas SparksNicholas Charles Sparks was born on December 31, 1965, in Omaha, Nebraska, to Patrick Michael Sparks, a professor of business, and Jill Emma Marie Sparks (née Thoene), a homemaker and an optometrist's assistant. Sparks was raised Roman Catholic, and is of German, Czech, English and Irish ancestry. He and his wife are devout Catholics and are raising their children in the Catholic faith. He also met his future wife that year, Cathy Cote from New Hampshire, while they were both on spring break. They married on July 22, 1989 and moved to New Bern, North Carolina.[4] Sparks resides in North Carolina with his wife, Cathy; their three sons, Miles, Ryan, and Landon; and twin daughters, Lexie and Savannah.SETTINGThe story takes place in Wilmington, North Carolina. This is where John grew up and returns to when he is on his rare breaks from the army. This is also where he meets Savannah, on the nearby beach when she drops her purse off the peer and he retrieves it for her.CHARACTERSProtagonist/s:John TyreeJohn is the protagonist because he is the one experiencing the conflict of the story. He falls in love with Savannah shortly before he has to return back to the army. He falls in love with her, but must leave her for his job as much as he does not want to.Antagonist/s:Tim WheddonTim is a good friend of Savannah's. He is in love with Savannah and John realizes it too, while at the same time he himself is in love with her. In the end Savannah marries Tim, not John, which makes Tim the antagonist.ArmyThe army plays a huge part that separates the two and has brought a boat load of problems for the two characters. If John would have never had to go to Germany to serve and then re-enlist because of 9/11, Savannah and his relationship would have grew stronger than ever before.Other Characters: John Tyree, Savannah Lynn Curtis, Mr. Curtis,...
