“To Build a Fire”

By Jack London


Conflict

Conflict

  • A struggle between two opposing forces:

    • Man vs. Man (external conflict)

    • Man vs. Nature (external conflict)

    • Man vs. Self (internal conflict)


Irony

Irony

  • Dramatic Irony

    • When there is a contradiction between what a character thinks and what the reader knows to be true.

    • Usually heightens the sense of conflict.

    • What examples of dramatic irony can you think of? (from modern movies, TV, etc.)
