Character vs Society Character vs Self Plot: Character vs. Character Conflict This type of conflict finds the main character in conflict with another character, human or not human. The new one is the most beautiful of all; he is so young and pretty. And the old swans bowed their heads before him.

Then he felt quite ashamed, and hid his head under his wing; for he did not know what to do, he was so happy, and yet not at all proud. He had been persecuted and despised for his ugliness, and now he heard them say he was the most beautiful of all the birds. The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson Plot: Character vs. Nature Conflict This type of conflict finds the main character in conflict with the forces of nature, which serve as the antagonist. Its a Truffula Seed.

Its the last one of all! Youre in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds. And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs. Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air. Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

Lets fight for freedom! cried Bouncer. Well be soldiers! Rough-riding Rowdies! Ill be the general and commander-in-chief! The Island of the Skog by Steven Kellogg Plot: Character vs. Self Conflict In this type of conflict, the main character experiences
