Character/Characterization Character – a person in a story, play or poem (This does not have to actually be a person. In some stories the characters are animals, objects, aliens, etc) In a story you must discover a character’s personality in order to understand who they are and what they do. This is called Characterization – the process of revealing the personality of a character
There are two types of 1.Direct Characterization – when the writer tells you exactly what the character is like. (You don’t have to figure it out) Ex)Mrs. Jenkins is a strong woman. She is brave and will help anyone in need. However, when an author uses direct characterization you have to be careful of his BIAS the unfair influence of someone's actions or thoughts; prejudice Just because he tells us about the character doesn’t mean that his interpretation is correct. (Take it with a grain of salt)
2. Indirect Characterization – when the writer gives hints to the character’s personality and you have to use your own judgment to determine what they are like. Ex) Mr. Cod always looks at the right side of the menu, where the prices are, when he takes Mrs. Cod to dinner. He also makes her walk six blocks to the restaurant instead of getting on the bus. In indirect characterization the writer will reveal the characters personality using five indirect indicators.
Speech – the tone of voice and the words a character uses Appearance- the way a character looks and dresses Private Thoughts – What a person thinks or feels about something What others say – how others see or view a character Actions – what a character does (physically)
Classifying Characters 1. Static or Dynamic Static – a character that doesn’t change much throughout the story. They keep the same traits and personality Dynamic – a character that changes as a result of the story 2. Flat or Round Flat – a character with only one or tow traits that can be easily described Round – (like a real person) a character with many traits that sometimes class with each other There are two categories of Classification Note: when classifying a character you would say that they are one of each type. They are static and flat or round and static, etc.
