Oskar and the Underground Man
As I was reading Chapter 1 of Part II of "Notes from Underground," I, like Samantha insightfully said today in class, was reminded of Oskar from "The Tin Drum." The narrator's antisocial tendencies and insecurities seem to mirror Oskar's. Also, both Oskar and the narrator of "Notes from Underground" take pride in their intelligence. Do you all see any other similarities between Oskar and the Underground man?
