Charlie Stowe is the main character in the brief story " I spy”. He comes from a coastal town (p. 92, l. 8) and he is 12 years old (p. 92, l. 12), this means he is during a period of transition. He can about to enter in a new phase in his life, because he will eventually become a teen, which might be explains his behaviour in the short-story, in which he alternates between your childish part of him, which makes him insecure and nervous (p. 93, l. 8: " …he would not dare…”) and the adult side of him which tells him that: " if perhaps he had been caught finally, there was nothing to be done about this, and he may as well have got his smoke cigars. ” (p. 94, l. 4-5) For p. 94, l. 4, it also says that having been telling himself these things " in his strangely enough adult way” and later in, (p. 94, l. 9) " grown-up and idiotic exhortations strangely mixed”, that i see, substantiated by the fact that he is muttering both taunts and aide, as an emblem of above-mentioned: his confusion through his id crisis.
