I'm writing my MA paper about Soul Music (mainly about Quoth) and I guess I need your help. I have to write something about elegiac (like in poetry; mournful, sad mourning for a person etc) elements in SM. Well, elegiac characters are Susan and Death. Susan is 'trapped' in the past, as she's reminiscing about her parents or the childhood at Death's house. Binky, Quoth and Death of Rats made her to think again about her grandfather, and she recalls the swing in the garden, black apples, etc.
Death has existential problems, asks philosophical questions and tries to find answers about his sense of living, etc. He's sad, the mood is gloomy, and that make him elegiac character (in general).
Do you see any other characters/situations being elegiac?
Thanks in advance for your responses,
