有的小说注重故事情节，有的情节清晰，有的情节边缘。这篇文章详细描述了在这段时间里许多人喜欢的繁荣的特征之一。小说《Jade Peony Grant》中的Sek Lung是一个边缘性人物，这种说法可以用各种证据加以证明。
Some novels have attention getting stories, some have clear plot and some have marginal characters. This essay details about one of the characters of the boom that have been liked by many people during this time. Sek-Lung in the novel “Jade Peony Grant” is a marginal character and this statement can be proved by various evidences.
1.Sek-Lung had a different story and throughout the novel as he was stuck between two cultures and was confused about each one.
2.He had health issues which made him an attraction throughout the story.
3.He was emotionally attached with his grandmother as he knew only she could understand him.
Discussion about evidence
The first evidence which proves Sek-Lung as a marginal character is about the confusions he had about both the cultures. As he was a Chinese kid he had a Chinese background and heritage but born in Canada made him develop many questions and confusions about both cultures. He wanted to feel at comfort with both cultures but he felt that he was always at a discomfort at both cultures. He was never comfortable at home because he felt he was a third party. Third part of the boom explains about the fact that “even if I was born in Vancouver, even if I should salute the Union Jack a hundred million times, even if I had the cleanest hands in all the Dominion of Canada and pray forever, I would still be Chinese” (Choy 151). He says at times to turn white and become like Canadians. “All the Chinatown adults were worried over those of us recently born in Canada, born neither this nor that, neither Chinese nor Canadian, born without understanding the boundaries, born mo no – no brain.” (Choy 152).
