Trickster in literature

The idea of a trickster in literature has been around for quite some time.It is usually the trickster who is most active in the story and actually causes our main characters to react or not to react. It is the trickster who, perhaps, actually teaches us the lesson we are supposed to learn.

Here is the task: After reading Coyote and Bear, define the word “trickster.”After developing your definition, think about anything you have read (book, play, short story) or seen (film) which contains a trickster. Describe and discuss this character in the work you have chosen by relating to your definition of the term.
