Character vs. Nature

The Titanic sinks
Have you seen a disaster film? Character vs. Nature is the conflict we see in so many of those types of films. In our example photo, Rose and Jack are attempting to escape the Titanic, which is sinking. This conflict places a character against the forces of nature. The conflict is external but there may be some internal conflict as the character is often forced to survive and face their own fears.

On a separate sheet of paper, with your group members, come up with three examples of either films or novels that contain this conflict. Be ready to share these in class.
