Three types: •Physical Characterization –The characters’ physical appearance •Psychological Characterization—The characters’ thoughts and feelings •Social Characterization—How the characters relate to other characters. All of the above can occur through the author’s use of two methods of characterization: •Direct Characterization—When an author makes a direct statement about a character’s nature. •Indirect Characterization—When the author allows the reader to draw his or her own conclusions about the nature of a character.
