  • Climax. The Crimean War started. The clergyman took part in the war to protect the country. Scoresby became a captain but he comitedmany blunders in the war. It was caused worry to the clergyman. The colonel died so Scoresby was next in the rank. A blunder will bring them destruction and the clergyman thought that they would be lose. But because of their luck, the Russian fled from the battle ground in confusion.
  • Falling Action. They won the battle and Scoresby became a hero. Scoresby mistakes his right hand for his left and leads a charge in the wrong direction, surprising a Russian forceand causes a retreat of the Russian army, thus securing an Allied victory.
  • Resolution. Scoresby had been a shining soldier in all the wars for many years. His military life was full of blunders but they brought him great success. It was a proof that a man would get the best if he was born lucky.
secondary theme
Secondary Theme
  • Superior feeling can make someone fool
  • Wrong decision in the right time can bring success
  • The narrator "I" is a static character. He's a bit player anyway and always introduces the action.
  • Scoresby is a develop character. He develops with his education and luck. By each detail of his education and luck, his story changes.
  • The clergyman is perhaps the most dynamic character of all. Every time Scoresby "learns" or has one of his luck, the clergyman changes and develops an opinion about Scoresby.
