  4. 4. Analyzing Plot<br />A. Introduction or Exposition <br />The setting, characters, main conflicts are introduced to the reader; this is the beginning of a novel or story and may be short or long, but is always flat (little action or emotion).<br />
  5. 5. Analyzing Plot<br />B. Rising Action <br />The round characters are developed, the conflicts are increased and acted out in many ways, motives are introduced, things happen; generally, the major part of a novel or story.<br />
  6. 6. Analyzing Plot<br />C. Climax<br />The "high point" of a story in which the major conflicts erupt insome kind of final showdown (fight, argument, violent or physical action, very tense emotional moment...); at the end of the climax, the "winner" will be clear (there is not always a winner!).<br />
  7. 7. Analyzing Plot<br />D. Falling Action<br />The events that immediately follow the climax; a kind of "cleaning up."<br />
  8. 8. Analyzing Plot<br />E. Resolution<br />Where everything ends; the reader may have some sense of "closure" or may be asked to think about what might come next; in fairy tales, the Happy Ending; in some novels, you will read about the characters many years later.<br />
