Transcript of Prezi on Literary Conflict

Types of Literary Conflict: There are seven types
of literary conflict. They are:
Man vs. Man: This is when the problem
is between two people. For example,
Leslie and Janice Avery in Bridge to Terabithia.
Man vs. Self: This is when the problem is
inside of the character: a fear, angst, or self-doubt.
Jess has a man vs. self conflict when he can't accept
Leslie's death.
Man vs. Nature: This is when the problem is between
a person and the weather, an animal, or a natural feature
like a mountain or the desert. Odysseus has a problem with
the ocean in The Odyssey.
Man vs. Society: This is when the problem is between
a person and a larger group such as the court system.
Atticus Finch brilliantly defends an innocent man in To Kill A
Mocking Bird.
Man vs. Technology: This is when the problem is between a
person and a machine, computer, or robot. In the Transformers
series, man is attacked by alien robots.
Man vs. the Supernatural: This is when the problem
lies between a person and a supernatural being like the
Greek gods or a ghost. Ichabod Crane is chased by the
Headless Horseman in The Legend of Sleepy Hollo
Man vs. Destiny: This is when a person fights
against his fate or against his future. The Harry Potter
series is about Harry's struggle to fulfill his destiny.

Most novels and movies have more than one
type of conflict; some have all seven!
