What is a conflict? • The heart of fiction. It creates plot. • a fight, battle, or struggle; strife; controversy; quarrel • Man versus man • Man versus nature • Man versus society • Man versus self http://www.orangeusd.k12.ca.us/yorba/literary_elements.htm
Man Versus Man • Conflict that pits one person against another. • Conflict enhances the reader’s understanding of a character and creates the suspense and interest that make you want to continue reading.
Man Versus Nature • A run-in with the forces of nature. It expresses the insignificance of a single human life in the cosmic scheme of things. It tests the limits of a person’s strength and will to live.
Man Versus Self • Internal conflict. Not all conflict involves other people. Sometimes people are their own worst enemies. An internal conflict is a good test of a character’s values. The internal conflicts of a character and how they are resolved are good clues to the character’s inner strength.
Man Versus Society • The values and customs by which everyone else lives are being challenged. • A character challenges the status quo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1Z4-gsTayg&feature=related (8:40-9:15, 9:32-9:42)
