Example text

Characters are constructed in a narrative; they are collections of character traits. When we say that a character in a film was ‘complex’ or ‘well developed,’ we really mean that the character was a collection of several or varying traits. A rich character such as Sherlock Holmes is a mass of traits (his love of music, his addiction to cocaine, his skill in disguise, and so on). On the other hand, a minor character may have only one or two traits. In general, a character will have the number and kind of traits needed to function causally in the narrative.

A character’s movements may simultaneously represent some (dramatic) piece of action and indicate his or her frame of mind, habits or livelihood. For example a man who walks with a rolling gait is probably a sailor and one who has a swagger might be a cowboy. A woman in ads is often represented indexically by bits of her body – hips, eyes, head, hands or legs – which signify not only in themselves but also her whole being. They can also signify a commodity – lipstick, eye make-up, shampoo, nail polish, tights, etc.

Thus she turns herself into an object – and most particularly, an object of vision: a sight’ (Berger in Vestergaard & Schrøder 1992: 81). This is a somewhat negative interpretation of the centrality of women on the covers of magazines. However, Bignell sees that ‘while the cover image is for a woman to look at, it is constructed with reference to a wider social code in which being feminine means taking pleasure in looking at oneself, and taking pleasure in being looked at by men’ (my italics, Bignell 1997: 71).
