Journal Entry #1

Authors describe their characters in various ways. There are two main forms of characterization:

Direct: the writer makes direct statements about a character’s personality and tells what the character is like.

Indirect: the writer reveals information about a character and his personality through that character’s thoughts, words, and actions, along with how other characters respond to that character, including what they think and say about him.

Write a journal entry (do not list!) answering the following questions about characterization in your book:

(Be sure to include at least two (2) quotations with page numbers from your reading.

Failure to include appropriate quotes will result in a half credit grade.)

  • Does the author use more direct or indirect characterization? Explain.
  • Give an example of each and tell why it is direct or indirect.

(Does it show physical appearance, actions, dialogue or thoughts?)

  • Are there any characters that are more developed than others? Why do you think that is?
