    Chapter 3: character

    Hero/ heroine- often called the protagonist, this is the central character who engages the reader’s interest and empathy.

    Static character-a figure whose identifying characteristics and persona do not change throughout the work. The reader’s knowledge of this type of character does not grow; this character does not evolve

    Dynamic character- a figure who undergoes some kind of change as the action of the the plot unfolds. This sort of character tends to transform in some capacity, often through personal reflection or as function of the development and resolution of the story’s essential plot

    Flat character- this type of character embodies one or two qualities, or traits that can be readily described in brief summary.

    Stock characters- they embody stereotypes such as the “dumb blonde” “wicked stepmom”

    Round characters- these tend to be more complex than flat characters, and often display the inconsistencies and internal conflicts found in most real people. They are more fully developed, and therefore are harder to summarize

    “The Jilting of Granny Weatherall” – Katherine Anne porter

    – controlling -capable
    granny is the pillar of strength

    Senile, going through a reckoning process
    Never got over George
    Jilting actually hurt her
    Did she ever get over her first jilt, George?
    How many jilts did she have and who?

    “Miss Brill” – Katherine Mansfield
    The quality of being introverted and isolated from the outside world
    She sees in other people what she can’t see in herself
    How did she see herself?

    Who was really crying at the end of the story?
