Transcript of Characterization in Lord of the Flies

Characterization in Lord of the Flies
Four types of characterization
I. Physical Description
II. Speech and actions of the character
III. Direct comment from the narrator
IV. Speech and other actions of other characters
II. Speech and actions of the character
Piggy tries hard to cling to civilization, and tries his best to keep peace. While probably the smartest boy on the island, he lacks social skills and has trouble communicating or fitting in with the others.
Character
Generally the central or focal element in a story
Physical Description
Piggy
A short and overweight boy who wears glasses and is afflicted with asthma
III. Direct comment from the narrator
IV. Speech and other actions of other characters
Jack believed that hunting was more important than keeping the fire going in case a ship sails by.
Four types of characters
1. Round- complex or presented in detail
2. Dynamic - developing and learning in the course of the story
3. Flat- characterized by one or two traits
4. Static - unchanged from the story's beginning and end
I. Round
An example of a round character in Lord of the Flies is Simon because he always helped Ralph, and began to question the existence of the beast. He was also very loyal to Ralph.
II. Dynamic
An example of a dynamic character in Lord of the Flies is Ralph due to his very noticeable change, as he went from civilized from savage as the book progressed.
III. Flat
IV. Static
An example of a static character in Lord of the Flies is Piggy. He remains essentially both physically and mentally unchanged.
An example of a flat character in Lord of the Flies is Roger because he did not have a variety of characteristics. He was cruel throughout most of the story, and his only trait was his cruelness to others.
"The fat boy waited to be asked his name in turn but his proffer of acquaintance was not made; the fat boy hung steadily at his shoulder"
