Characterization »This is the way the writer presents the character in the story; it’s the art of making people real. There are two types of characterization.
Direct Characterization In direct characterization, the narrator or another character tells us what a person is like. The words are directly written in the book. EXAMPLE o Tyler was a talented little boy. He was a great pitcher and could hit a home run almost every time he came to bat.
Indirect Characterization Indirect characterization shows things that reveal the personality of a character. It is not directly stated in the story. There are four different methods
This can be done in five different ways. DIRECT CHARACTERIZATION OR INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION through speech INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION through thoughts INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION through affect on other characters INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION through actions
Indirect through Speech SPEECH : What does the character say? How does the character speak? Example: Tyler was pouting on his team’s bench. “We’re never going to win this game. Come on! Hit the ball! You guys are awful!”
Indirect through Thoughts Thoughts: What is revealed through the character’s private thoughts and feelings? Example: Tyler thought that Jason was the only other good player on the team. He believed that the other players just never tried hard enough.
Indirect through Affect on Other Characters What is revealed through the character’s effect on other people? How do other characters feel or behave in reaction to the character? Example: “Tyler is always pouting on the bench,” stated Brian. “I wish he would be more of a team player!”
Indirect through Actions What does the character do? How does the character behave? Example: Tyler crushed a home run and ran around the bases taunting the other team. BACK
See if you can determine which type of characterization is being used. Forrest screamed, “Why don’t you just give me a new bike? I need one now!” Indirect Characterization through SPEECH
Forrest threw himself on the ground and kicked the couch when his mother wouldn’t buy him a bike. Indirect Characterization through ACTIONS
Forrest was an extremely angry child and was, once again, upset that his mother wouldn’t buy him a new bike. Direct Characterization
I wonder if my mother will ever buy me a new bike. She doesn’t understand how much I need it. Indirect Characterization through THOUGHTS
“Forrest, stop acting like a baby! Get off the floor! I’ll buy you a new bike when you can control yourself!” Indirect Characterization through AFFECT ON OTHER CHARACTERS
Your turn »Come up with your own examples of direct and indirect characterization about yourself.
