Transcript of Thirteen Reasons Why

Tabetha Marsh Character Analysis Presentation Character Main character who opposes the protagonist (alson known as the villian). Sometimes more easily identified. Protagonist They're the main character in a litery work that the audience most likely empathizes with (also known as hero). Not always easily identified. Character Traits Attritubutes of a character, either physical or emotional. Character Motivation The reasons why a charater acts, thinks, or feels a certain way. There are two types: internal and external. Character Development The definition is in the word. The development of a character.

Courtney Crimson Marcus Cooley Zach Dempsey Ryan Shaver Bryce Walker Jenny Kurtz Physical. Emotional. Hannah had long blonde hair which she cut short before she died. Clay is kind, impatient, cooperative, and stressed. Hannah is smart and sarcastic. Examples Example: Hannah Baker Why? This book explains why she killed herself through cassette tapes she recorded before her death. On them she describes 13 reasons/people who made her kill herself. Mr. Porter
Skye Miller
Tony Antagonist Example: Clay Jensen Why? He was on the tapes. (Even though it is said he didn't belong.) He didn't stay and comfort Hannah (the protagonist) when she obviously needed it. Internal examples: Hannah had a goal and was seeking revenge. She wanted to die but she also wanted the people who made her feel this way know how they were responsible. That's why she made the tapes and took the pills. Clay wanted knowledge. That's why he kept listening to the tapes. External examples: Hannah mentioned many reasons why she killed herself that could be classified as external. Some are the list, rumours of her first kiss, and someone grabbing her butt in a store. Dynamic Character who changes behavior or learns a lesson as the story goes on. Example: Clay Jensen Why? Clay learns he is one of the reasons his crush commited suicide. Static Character who remains unchanged throughout the story. Example: Hannah Baker Why? She doesn't change because she is already dead. Even in the recordings she is upset and dreary and in most of the flashbacks are the same way. the writer makes direct statements about a character's personality and tells what the character is like. Direct Characterization: Example: How is this direct and not indirect? Indirect Characterization: the author uses a direct statement. the writer reveals information about a character and his personality through that character's thoughts, words, and actions, along with how other characters respond to that character, including what they think and say about him. Example: How is this indirect and not direct? Narrator The one telling the story, doesn't always have to be a character from the litery work. Does this novel have a narrator? Yes, Clay. How do you know? He tells about what he thinks and sees. You can tell it's him by key words such as: "I" and "me." Skye is very good at avoiding people. the author doesn't directly state it; however, the way other people react hints at it. Hannah is very pretty.
