Don’t worry it will be over before you know it. Hope you enjoy. PLOT DIAGRAM Climax Dénouement Exposition EXPOSITION • The begging of the story • Intro of setting, characters, and sets time • comprehensive description and explanation of an idea or theory Talks about how Montresor was wronged and he would get revenge. The exposition can very in many leanth and sizes. They aren’t just one event. They tell all the charters details, what there like, and what they look like. INCITING INCIDENT • where an event is struck upon the protagonist • When the characters life changes from the normal to adapt to the story When Fortunato threatens Montresor RISING ACTION • the series of events that begin immediately after the exposition • builds up to the climax. When they are walking to the nitre CLIMAX • the most intense • Exciting or important point of the story Montresor ties Fortunato in the nitre FALLING ACTION • Part of a story after the climax • But before the very end When Montresor puts up the brick wall in front of Fortunato. RESOLUTION • Central conflict has ended The wall is built to the ceiling. DÉNOUEMENT • The final part of a play, movie, or narrative • The strands of the plot are drawn together • Matters are explained or resolved. When Montresor says “ Against the new masonry I re-erected the old rampart of bones. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. SETTING • the place or surroundings where something is positioned • or where something takes place. The setting for The Cask of Amontillado is in Italy PLOT ELEMENT • The main events of a play, story, or movie One example would be when Montresor builds the wall to trap Fortunato. POINT OF VIEW, NARRATOR, AND VOICE • Point of view • 3rd person limited- it is limited to one person’s thoughts and feelings, and follows that one person • 3rd person atomistic- tells every characters thoughts and feelings, and follows them • 2nd person- the narrator says you a lot • 1st person- the narrator tells the story through his eyes The Cask of Amontillado the theme is 3rd person atomistic because it tells the side of both parties and uses names THEME • The lesson learned in the story The theme of The Cask of Amontillado is to treat others how you want to be treated. CONCLUSION • In this wonderful power point I have told you about the plot diagram, setting, plot element, point of view, narrator, voice, and theme. Hope you learned something.
