Robert Cohn is an eager, Jewish young man from a wealthy family history. He went to Princeton and was teased for being Jewish, which made him race-conscious. Going to Princeton made him bitter, so he learned how to box to take out his aggressions. He married the first girl who was nice to him, divorced, and became the sole editor of a magazine company. He loved to write, so he went to Europe to become inspired. He had complicated girl issues, for he had never been in love in his life, but was always in a relationship. After Europe he went back to America with a novel he wrote. It was accepted by a good publisher and he changed from the simple, nice man he once was. Now, he wasn’t pleasant to be around, and a bit vain. “I cant stand it to think my life is going by so fast and I’m not living it.”
