1 The Shipping News

2 Characterization is the process by which the writer reveals the personality of a character. Characterization is revealed through direct and indirect characterization. Direct Characterization tells the audience what the personality of the character is. Indirect Characterization shows things that reveal the personality of a character.

3 There are five different methods of indirect characterization: Speech: What does the character say? How does the character speak? Thoughts: What is revealed through the characters private thoughts and feelings? Effect: on others toward the character. What is revealed through the characters effect on other people? How do other characters feel or behave in reaction to the character Actions: What does the character do? How does the character behave? Looks: What does the character look like? How does the character dress?

4 Alliteration: the repetition of a particular sound in the first syllables of a series of words or phrases. Assonance: the repetition of vowel sounds to create internal rhyming within phrases or sentences Consonance: a poetic device characterized by the repetition of the same consonant two or more times in short succession, as in "pitter patter" or in "all mammals named Sam are clammy".

5 Rhythm: a recognizable pulse, or "recurrence," which gives a distinct beat to a line and also gives it a shape. Onomatopoeia: a word that imitates the sound it represents.

6 Anaphora: One of the devices of repetition, in which the same phrase is repeated at the beginning of two or more lines.
