    Ok, What actually does it mean?? I know it isn't describing characters and i have been told this is important in my English Literature AS exams.

    Part of it is describing characters, not just they way they look but how they act, why they act that way, how they develop and what purpose the author is serving in creating such a character. Surely you must have done this in class if your taking the AS exam? York notes usually have sections on characterization for most texts.

    ooo.. I had a few lessons like that last year. This year I'm having to teach myself Webster because my English teacher kept "flirting" and messing about in lessons.

    Anyways- this probabily won't help, but I just looked up the definition in York Notes and it says "the technique by which a writer clotehs the personae of his (sexist!) sotry to make them credible".

    What text are you studying?
