"The Cask" Characterization Review
By: Damion Palasota & Ben Barmore
Direct Characterization: When the author directly states the character's traits.
Indirect Characterization: When the author gives clues about the character's traits but never directly states them.
Characterization Examples in "The Cask of Amontillado"
Indirect Characterization: "You, who know so well the nature of my soul, will not suppose however, that I gave utterance to a threat." (Poe, Paragraph 1).
