Recall that characterization is the way in which an author introduces the personality of a character.

Direct characterization  is when the author comes right out and tells his audience characteristics of this character.

  • Shelly is pretty.
  • Jessup is shy.

Indirect characterization is when the author shows qualities of a character through speech, actions, dress, thoughts, and interactions with other characters.

If you still have any questions concerning these concepts, post a comment to this post.

I only tolerate direct characterisation, and I boycott all fiction depending on indirect characterisation.
