Slide 1

´╗┐Artistic Elements Character as a scholarly term, alludes to a man or a creature in a story, sonnet, novel, or a play. An essayist who is proficient in the reasonable formation of characters is said to be great at "portrayal."

Slide 2

Real Life and Literary Characters One of the wonders of writing is that scholars can show us about genuine individuals and about human instinct by making and introducing to us their fanciful characters. One reason perusers cherish writing is that we experience and come to know "individuals" whom we will never something else "meet." Getting to know characters, for example, Don Quixote, Hester Prynne, Hamlet, Jay Gatsby, and Madame Bovary advances our lives.

Slide 3

The Difference. . . . When we say in regards to a genuine individual, "He's a genuine character," we imply that he has strikingly one of a kind or obvious characteristics. All characters in fiction have picked attributes and perform activities which the creator has picked, disposing of other conceivable characteristics and activities with a specific end goal to highlight certain parts of that one character. A few characters appear to be extremely exact or consistent with life, while others may appear to be incredible, so envisioned that we could never truly hope to meet such a genuine individual in our own lives.

Slide 4

. . . is Choice and Arrangement Writing fiction and verse is making craftsmanship . Characters are made, manufactured representations . Creators painstakingly pick the foundation and conditions in which they put their characters. In doing as such, they kill the more paltry regular events which tend to mess the scenes in our own particular regular day to day existences. This is the reason abstract characters are so not the same as whatever is left of us. Pretty much all that they do and say may appear to be critical and fascinating!

Slide 5

Everything Matters In reality, since creators pick their characters' words and activities, those creators think about everything as a character says and does to be critical. Thus should we. It's useful, then, to give careful consideration to what every character says and does. Such consideration is critical in a short story in light of the fact that no character is truly "in front of an audience" long. Give careful consideration to redundancy of pictures or examples in connection to any character. Such pictures may give us a key knowledge into that character's identity.

Slide 6

Born Again Characters Some creators do breath life into their characters back in different works. At that point we can become more acquainted with the characters stunningly better since we are permitted to see them in an assortment of conditions, in different stories. In any case, such is by and large not the situation in short stories, despite the fact that there are numerous outstanding special cases. One is Sherlock Holmes, whom we know through an extensive arrangement of Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. We keep perusing these stories and others with repeating characters since we have developed to know and maybe cherish the character and we need to realize what he or she is doing, what new situation presents itself.

Slide 7

Life on the Page Characters live just on the page. They have no lives past the page. In this way - in spite of the fact that we can guess - it is not so much productive to compose a lot about what a character may do off the page, after a story closes. This confinement powers perusers to center our consideration, and our own basic written work, on the confirmation we do have - whatever the characters say, do, or educate us regarding themselves in the current story, or on whatever another character or the story's storyteller lets us know.

Slide 8

Knowing a Character Ways we can find out about specific characters: Action: what the character does Dialogue: what the character says Narration: what a storyteller conveys Appearance how the character looks Name how the character is named: ( Mr Gradgrind, for instance , is a dull, strict, and unforgiving educator in Charles Dickens' novel Hard Times.)

Slide 9

Types of Conflict Remember sorts of contention happening in a short story: character versus character versus society character versus nature character versus self __________________________________

Slide 10

Character by Role Protagonist: the focal character Antagonist: the character or drive against whom the focal character battles Foil: a character whose lone part is to underline and highlight by differentiation the advancement occurring in different characters ____________________________________________ [No moral judgment is suggested by the expressions "hero" and "rival." A rival could be "great" while a hero could be "evil."]

Slide 11

Character by Change and Development Static character: one who continues as before, or practically along these lines, all through a story, perpetual Dynamic character: one who changes Flat character: a "sort" or "one-dimensional" or, maybe, a "stock" character with no profundity or multifaceted nature of identity: the devoted sidekick; the petulant spouse; the barbarous stepmother; the awful cop Round character: a "three-dimensional" character, adequately intricate as to be authentic as a man with all the profundity and flightiness that genuine individuals make them have, "more features" than a level character (Kennedy & Gioia 61).
