Character Analysis Jim Popock

Jim Pocock, husband of Sarah Pocock and brother to Mamie Pocock, represents the typical American businessman of the times: “Small and fat and constantly facetious, straw-colored and destitute of marks, he would have been practically indistinguishable hadn’t his constant preference for light-grey clothes, for white hats, for very big cigars and very little stories, done what it could for his identity.” Although he has accompanied Sarah to Europe, he does not play an important role in influencing Chad’s return to Woollett. He “didn’t know quite what Sally had come for, but he had come for a good time.”
