Transcript of The reason why authors use dialogue in their pieces of texts

Dialogue is important because when you have dialogue it shows the character's personality, emotions, and actions. With dialogue you can show how the character is instead of describing how the character is.
Example: In the story A Retrieved Reformation at the very end of the story Ben Price talks like he doesn't know Jimmy Valentine because he understands that Jimmy has reformed.

Why do authors use dialogue?
Why is dialogue important?
The reason why authors use dialogue in their pieces of texts is to help the reader to get to know the character while also revealing the character's emotions and actions. But the main idea of using dialogue is to show reality such as a conversation between characters. Example: In the text a Retrieved Reformation the author, O. Henry, we learned that Jimmy Valentine was a successful criminal and took a new identity.

How does dialog impact the characters?
Dialogue affects the characters because they understand and connect with the other characters. Without dialogue in a book then no one will understand each other.
