Here is the second part of my summary I really need you to revise. Thank you.

1) Details of the behaviour, clothes and so on of the characters are part of the social setting of the story.
Characters are the people who appear in a novel and represent the most important ingredient of the world of fiction.
2) The presentation of a character can be direct, when the writer gives the character’s personality and appearance through description (when the writer tells the reader of the character’s personality and appearance) –or indirect – when the reader has to infer the features of a (the) character from his/her interaction with other characters, feelings and thoughts.
3) Depending on their role in the story there can be major and minor characters. A further distinction should be made between round and flat characters.
4) The former are built around a single psychological trait; they are easy to recognize and they are static, that is they do not develop in the course of the action.
5) They are minor characters that can be used to create a particular atmosphere inside a complex narrative frame. The latter change their personality as the narration develops and can even influence the plot.
