Description

This study argues that the central character of Anthony Powell's novel, A Dance to the Music of Time, is Kenneth Widmerpool. A survey of the criticism available on The Music of Time, contained in this study's introduction, indicates that there are a few precedents for this argument but there there are no thorough analyses of the problem from which this argument arises: the identity and function of the novel's central character. This study is organized around separate analyses of three of the novel's elements. Chapter Two deals with characterization, Chapter Three with theme, and Chapter Four with structure. This study concludes that, based on evidence availabe in The Music of Time itself, Widmerpool is the central character.
