http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/booksellers/press_release/100freshman/freshman.pdf
Dynamic
- A dynamic character is a person who changes over time, usually as a result of resolving a central conflict or facing a major crisis. Most dynamic characters tend to be major rather than minor characters, because resolving the conflict is the main role of central characters.
Static
- A static character is someone who does not change over time; his or her personality does not transform or evolve.
Round
- A rounded character is anyone who has a complex personality; he or she is often portrayed as a conflicted and contradictory person.
Flat
- A character opposite of a round character. This literary personality is notable for one kind of personality trait or characteristic.
Stock
- characters who have become conventional or stereotypical through repeated use in particular types of stories. Stock characters are instantly recognizable to readers or audience members (e.g. the femme fatale, the cynical but moral private eye, the mad scientist, the geeky boy with glasses, and the faithful sidekick). Stock characters are normally one-dimensional flat characters, but sometimes stock personalities are deeply conflicted, rounded characters (e.g. the "Hamlet" type).
Character Types:
Assign a character type to each of the major characters in Romeo and Juliet according to the definition given below:
