Methods of Characterization
Characterization the way an author reveals the
special qualities and personalities of a
character in a story, making the character
Indirect Characterization writer shows you what
character is like by revealing
  • Appearance
  • Actions
  • Words
  • Thoughts and feelings
  • Other characters comments or reactions

Appearance Can infer a lot about characters
from the clothes they wear, their facial
features, their body language, and their
mannerisms. Tex was the head rancher on the
farm. When he rounds up the horses, he can be
easily spotted with his beige hat and vest.
Texs smile is a mile wild, even with his bushy
jovial proud dedicated
Actions Much of what we learn about characters
is revealed to us through what they do.
Denise picked up the slimy bull frog. She could
hardly stand to hold it even for a moment. She
held it out at arms length from her body and
quickly carried it to her brother. squeamish
sensitive nervous
Words We often get to know characters because
of what they say to each other.
Anita threw her arms around Tony and gave him a
big hug. Thank you so much for being there for
me, she said. I dont think I could have faced
my parents without you.
thoughtful compassionate appreciative
Thoughts and feelings When an author lets us
get inside the mind of a character, we can often
learn a great deal about him or her.
Butch looked around the neighborhood. This would
be a safe place to play catch with Bobby, he
thought. Why doesnt Bobby throw the ball? He
must be in a bad mood or something.
loyal concerned playful
Other characters comments or reactions
sometimes other characters will tell us something
useful about the character were reading about.
You wouldnt believe what Lisa did yesterday,
Sara said to her sister. When we went into the
bridal shop, she pushed all the women aside and
demanded that the sales lady help us immediately.
It was really something!
Demanding pushy assertive
Direct Characterization The writer tells you
exactly (directly) what the character is like.
Mrs. Manning has an obnoxiously loud voice which
she uses to intimidate her students.
Betsy was a determined three year old, who knew
what she wanted and often got her way, if she
cried loud enough.
Stay in your seats or ELSE!!!!
