    2. Notes: Direct and Indirect Characterization
      1. We learn about a character’s personality through his or her traits which are stated directly (direct characterization).
        1. For example, in Act I, scene ii, Caesar is talking to Antony about Cassius when Caesar says, “Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.”
        2. Caesar has directly stated one of Cassius’s traits: dangerous.
      2. We also learn about a character’s personality through the actions and words a character uses (indirect characterization).
        1. For example, in Act I, scene ii, Caesar orders Antony to touch Calphurnia as he runs his race. Antony says, “When Caesar says. ‘Do this,’ it is performed.”
        2. These words show that Antony is a loyal and obedient
