Definition of conflict


Conflict: All fiction involves, at one level or another, conflict. A cha­rac­ter struggles against a certain environment or against others (external conflict), or he is engaged in a struggle with himself (internal conflict). One important approach to the right under­standing of any story is to determine the nature of the conflict involved and the pattern which the opposing forces assume.
