Types of Conflict in Literature Presentation Transcript

  • 1. TYPES OF CONFLICT
  • 2. Why is CONFLICT important?
    Without conflict, there is no plot!
    The plot mountain is created around the conflict…
    Introduced in rising action…
    Is faced head-on during climax…
    Begins to work itself out during falling action…
    Is resolved during resolution.
  • 3. EXTERNAL CONFLICT
    An external conflict is between a character and an outside force.
    Man vs. Man
    Man vs. Nature
    Man vs. Society
  • 4. MAN vs. MAN
    A character struggles with another character.
    Protagonist vs. Antagonist
    The classic “good guy” vs. “bad guy” situation
    Can you think of any examples?
  • 5. MAN vs. NATURE
    A character struggles with a force of nature (natural disaster, desolation, animal, etc.)
    Usually, the character is struggling to survive.
    Can you think of any examples?
  • 6. MAN vs. SOCIETY
    In this conflict, a character or a group of characters fight against the society in which they live.
    The character fights against social traditions or rules (fight for freedom, rights, for a cause etc.)
    Society becomes a “character” of its own
    Usually used to comment on positive or negative aspects of real society (SATIRE)
    Can you think of any examples?
  • 7. INTERNAL CONFLICT
    An internal conflict is between a character and his/her self.

  • 8. MAN vs. SELF
    The character’s struggle takes place in his/her own mind.
    Usually has something to do with a choice (choosing between right and wrong), or it may have to do with overcoming emotions or mixed feelings.
    Can you think of any examples?
  • 9. OTHER TYPES OF CONFLICT
