I can contrive plenty of fictional plots that don't involve characters directly and could never be misconstrued as essays.
********************** I snipped it but you continue to mention the implied characters. I see what you are talking about now. I'm willing to overlook the narrator as a character, and the implied characters are a long ways from actual characters, so I think I'm willing to admit that there can be a story without any characters.
OK. I've given up on that one. I have another idea. I think that the one big theme of literature is man's struggle in this world. You are going to let me keep that, aren't you? You wouldn't take that away from me too, would you? <g>
Ah, I'm definitely trying to learn, rather than lecture. :-)
