Because you're characterizing something

Think of the word "tragic".

But that would mean it's a resolution.

Another name for tragic resolution would be calamity and death. It is a common theme used in literature such as Shakespeare's Famous MacBeth.

It doesn't literally mean "resolved" as in coming to a conclusion. It's just a literary term.

becuase this is what my lesson tells me but it really doesnt say anything else :( Setting Let's talk "setting." Your story has to unfold somewhere, so your goal is to make your reader see and feel exactly what the intended image is. Is it an eerie place? A dramatic place? An exciting place? Whatever it is. Wherever it is. Put your reader right in the middle of it. With words. Characterization How about "characterization?" No one cares about a story if they don't care about the characters in it. So you have to give them personalities. Quirks. Stuff that makes the reader love. Hate. Empathize. FEEL. Is your character funny? You could communicate this by using jokes, quick wit, funny remarks, and unexpected retorts. What if your character is sad and lonely? How do you write about hopelessness and despair? Maybe you isolate your character. Give them internal monologues and negative thoughts and feelings. Or perhaps your character is supremely awkward. You could show this by having the character dress oddly; say random things; even react to things in the exact opposite manner one would expect. Ultimately, how your character's personality shines through is up to you. But shine is exactly what it should do. Irony and Sarcasm And now for "Irony" and "sarcasm"—great ways to help develop your characters and to enhance your story's impact on the reader. Irony is sometimes funny. Sometimes shocking. Always unexpected. It's the ridiculousness between what you think is supposed to happen and what actually happens. Like someone studies hard for a test only to find that it's open book. Or a guy heads out on a ski trip, gets to the slopes, and discovers there's no snow. Sarcasm is also unexpected, but typically refers to remarks that mean the opposite of what they seem to say. Plus, it's generally used to mock someone or something. So we've all used it before! Say the poor guy in the ironic skiing situation gets out of his car, takes a look at the barren, snowless slope, and says, "Now that's some sweet powder." He's clearly being sarcastic being that there is no powder in sight. Resolution The end. Well, that wasn't a good ending at all, was it? There was no resolution. The way a story ends often determines the impact it leaves with its readers. As an author, you have to decide how your story will resolve. Will it have a "gives you cold chills" finale? Ending in an exciting way? Will it have a happy ending with your characters living happily ever after, all their most sparkly dreams fulfilled? Or will it end in tragedy, with death, sadness, or utter despair? However you choose to resolve your story, remember—it's the last thing your audience will read and probably the first thing they'll remember. Make it count.

Wouldn't the author here be characterizing the screams? I don't see how it's a tragic resolution, its not sarcasm or irony, and it's not making the setting.

I strongly believe that it's characterization, I don't see how it's a tragic resolution.
