I chose to juxtapose Tracy Chapman's song "New Beginning" with the character of Quoyle because they're nice.
For me, The Shipping News is all about Quoyle, mainlly because Proulx gives such a vivid description of a truly unique literary character: sympathetic, and yet very complex and flawed. I think of Quoyle standing on the rocky cliffs, and I see Cassiel, the angel in Wings of Desire, standing on a tower overlooking dingy, dark Berlin...
I choose to to juxtapose my text to Quoyle because I found him to be the main character in the novel and he had a sweet ass.
I chose to juxtapose my text to Quoyle's character because I found his personality to be very similar to that of the narrator in my song and because they are both hung like horses.
