Recommended Posts

Protagonist vs. Antagonist

Now that you have a good idea of your story's theme and the character development, define the main conflict between the Protagonist and the Antagonist and how it demonstrates the theme.

Protagonist - The character the audience identifies with. The action should revolve around this character and the theme should be most evident in their journey.

Antagonist - What the Protagonist is fighting against. The Antagonist is either the person, people, concept or institution the Protagonist is trying to overcome. How they fail or succeed against the Protagonist should demonstrate the story's theme.

Lesson 2

Identify the Protagonist and Antagonist in your story and discuss how they convey your story's theme.
