Characterization examples

Characterization Examples

Author’s description:

“You could see now that he might make a boxer, as far as width and heaviness of shoulders went, but there was a mildness about his mouth and eyes that proclaimed no devil.”

Author’s description:

“…he was thin and bony; and his hair was red beneath the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without silliness. Out of this face stared two light blue eyes, frustrated now; and turning, or ready to turn, to anger.”

Characterization examples1

Characterization Examples

Character quote:

“I could swim when I was five. Daddy taught me. He’s a commander in the Navy.”

Author’s description:

“He was a small, skinny boy, his chin pointed, and his eyes to bright they had deceived Ralph into thinking him delightfully gay and wicked. The coarse mop of black hair was long and swung down, almost concealing a low, broad forehead…”



Character Quote:

“I ought to be chief…I can sing a C sharp.”

Character Action:

“…the littluns who had run after him caught up with him. They talked, cried out unintelligibly, lugged him toward the trees. Then, amid the roar of the bees in the afternoon sunlight, Simon found for them the fruit they could not reach.”
