How is the character of Charlie presented in Flowers of Algernon and how does he develop  

Charlie is the main character in Flowers for Algernon. His full name is Charlie Gordon. He is 37 years old and the way we know this is in the bit before scene one starts of the script. Charlie wants to be smart and this is the dream of Charlie which motivates through his time before the surgery takes place.

Charlie is found presented in front of Dr Strauss and Dr Nemur with Miss Kinnian beside him. He is instantly found himself ignored with the doctors and Miss Kinnian talking about him. It is also told by doctor Nemur of how his IQ is an awful 68 which also helps present Charlie Gordon as a very unintelligent person.
