Turning Points Pt. II A turning point is when characters or events undergo significant change.
Conflict Conflict is an essential feature of plot and characterization—NO MATTER THE GENRE. Without conflict of some kind there can be no satisfactory resolution to the story; there would be nothing to resolve.
Conflict Most conflict exists on two levels: internal and external.
Internal conflict battle between what the character wants to do and what the character must do- in his/her mind
Internal Conflict Jonas experiences an internal conflict because he misses his old life, his childhood, and his innocence. But he can't return to his former way of life because he has learned too much about joy, color, and love. Lowry writes of Jonas toward the beginning of Chapter 17, "But he knew he couldn't go back to that world of no feelings that he had lived in so long."
External Conflict outsidethe physical or outside problem standing in the way of the character and his or her goals or motivation.
External Conflict Jonas also experiences an external conflict between himself and the community. He is frustrated and angry because he wants his fellow citizens to change and thereby give up Sameness. He knows that the community and each person's life will benefit if only they would — or could — reclaim their individuality. But, they know no other way of life.
