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.
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.
Flat Character
Direct 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
Round Character
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
Static Characters
Characters that do not change their mental or emotional outlook throughout the course of a work.

NOTE: Some people use the terms "static" and "flat" interchangeably
Dynamic Characters
Characters that change their emotional or mental outlook throughout the course of a work.
