How to Read: Character

Characterization

How do readers learn about characters? The author can choose two basic methods:

Direct: a narrator tells us directly about a character's internal and external make- up. The narrator may perch inside a character's mind, outside (close by), or both.
Indirect: no narrator. Readers access characters externally: we know them only from their words, actions or what other characters say about them.
