Characterisation

Rime of the ancient marinerPosted by Simon Wells Wed, January 22, 2014 12:09:17

Your homework question (timed). Spend 30 minutes writing it based on today's session:
“In a narrative, there is usually a hero or heroine, a protagonist, on whose fate the readers’ interest in the story principally rests”

Write about the significance of protagonists in the text.

Discussion might focus on the ways characters are created:

· through authorial or narratorial description

· through the ways they speak

· through what other characters say about them

· through their actions, attitudes and behaviour

· through what is not said – the gaps in texts

· through the places in which they reside

· through their relationships with others

· through the structures of the narrative.
