Lesson overview:Character types and function

  • In this lesson, we will learn about different character types; what they are called, their key characteristics and their function in a text. We will re-examine our text of the week, 'The Tiredness of Rosabel,' by Katherine Mansfield from this perspective. Our lesson will look at a pivotal moment in the extract and examine what roles the three characters perform within the passage and how Mansfield both conforms to and subverts our expectations as readers.
