Transcript of Characterization
Characterization is the process by which the writer reveals the personality of a character. Characterization is revealed through direct characterization and indirect characterization.
the process by which the personality of a fictitious character is revealed through the character's speech, actions, appearance, etc.
The acronym STEAL can help to define indirect characterization.
the process by which the personality of a fictitious character is revealed by the use of descriptive adjectives, phrases, or epithets.
Direct characterization occurs when the author specifically reveals traits about the character in a direct, straightforward manner.
EXAMPLE: "Enter...Gremio, a pantaloon"
a flat character is a simple character without extensive personality and characterization; flat characters generally have one defining trait
A round character is depicted with such psychological depth and detail that he or she seems like a "real" person; a round character has many defining traits
Characters that do not change their mental or emotional outlook throughout the course of a work.
NOTE: Static and flat characters tend to be closely related. Pay careful attention to the differences in the definitions.
