Slide4 l.jpg

Aspects of Plot involving inexplicable Chance and Coincidence

  • The mystery of the hidden island is implausible

  • Social control of captive sailors is not adequately explained

  • The aberration between Zaroff’s cultivated and primitive natures is not explained

  • Falling overboard in search of a pipe is hard to believe

  • Such a meeting of two great hunters is unlikely

Setting Coincidence

Ship-Trap Island

  • The setting is ambiguous—an isolated island

    • essential to the plot but not adequately explained

  • The date is uncertain, but the story spans 4 days

  • The setting is both hostile and friendly

  • It is both natural and man-made

    Static? Developing?

  • Protagonist = Rainsford

  • Antagonists= Zaroff and Ivan

  • Minor character = Whitney

Why escapist? Coincidence

  • Plot is based mainly on suspense and entertainment rather than on in-depth character exploration

  • Plot has too many improbabilities

  • Setting is in an unbelievable social environment

  • Characters lack depth, and Zaroff is not a plausible character

  • There is an overall lack of artistic unity

  • Mainly - no substantial theme
