STOCK CHARACTER This is a character that will shows up in the story that is common in other literary texts. We assume characteristics about them based on their role in other stories. Example: fairy godmother, wise old man
STEREOTYPE When a character acts, speaks, dresses, or moves in a certain way based solely on their gender, age, race, religion, or socioeconomic status. PREDICTABLE behaviors. Usually inaccurate
ROUND CHARACTER This is a character that we know a lot about. We may know their background, their long term and short term goals. They are generally a major character. Example:
FLAT CHARACTER A minor character in a work of fiction. This character DOES NOT have a substantial change or growth during the story. Also can be referred to as a “two dimensional ” character. Example:
STATIC CHARACTER A character that DOES NOT CHANGE throughout the course of the story or literary work. Example:
DYNAMIC CHARACTER This character undergoes a significant physical or emotional change because of or related to the action in the plot. Their beliefs, attitude, lifestyle, and/or outlook are dramatically changed. Examples:
FOIL CHARACTER A character who contrasts with another character (usually the protagonist) and so highlights/emphasizes various facets of the main character’s personality. At first glance, the two character will seem the same (gender, age, race, status); however, something about one character’s personality will be so different that it will show us something about our protagonist.
F LASHBACK R EVIEW Protagonist: main character of the story who drives the plot Antagonist: the character or force who creates conflict with the Protagonist and attempts to keep them from reaching his/her goal Direct development is when the narrator makes a direct statement to describe a character. Indirect character development happens through actions and dialogue which describe a character. Character Motivation : Well developed characters have a clear motivation that helps explain their actions throughout a story. Some examples of motivation: To save a relationship To gain their freedom / independence To achieve success To learn the truth
P ARAPHRASING THE P ROLOGUE
P ARAPHRASING THE P ROLOGUE ( PG. 901) 1 Two households, both alike in dignity, 2 In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, 3 From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, 4 Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 5 From forth the fatal loins of these two foes 6 A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; 7 Whose misadventured piteous overthrows 8 Do with their death bury their parents' strife. 9 The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, 10 And the continuance of their parents' rage, 11 Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, 12 Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; 13 The which if you with patient ears attend, 14 What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
