Direct and Indirect Characterization
Direct characterization is when an author specifically tells the reader about a character in the text.
Indirect characterization is when an author shows the reader about a character, and the reader has to make inferences about the character.
Round vs. Flat
Round characters are complicated characters that have many sides and emotions. Protagonists are round characters. Flat characters are simple characters that demonstrate few traits.
Dynamic vs. Static
Dynamic characters undergo an important inner change, as a change in personality or attitude. Static characters, on the other hand, undergo little or no inner change.
