How to Read: Character


Characters—a summary

We talk about characters in two ways:

1. As real people
We discuss characters in the same way we do real people. We observe and interpret their words, actions, appearances, and background, as well as what others say about them.

2. As fictional creations
We look at characterization—the process authors use to create their characters. Are characters presented directly or indirectly? Are they convincing? Are they developed? Do they change by the end of the story?
