dramatic plot structure1
Dramatic Plot Structure
  • Exposition: During a plot’s exposition, the author gives background information about the story and introduces the story’s characters and setting. The exposition also introduces the main conflict.
  • Rising Action: Rising action is the series of events that lead up to the climax, or most dramatic moment, of the story.
  • Climax: The climax is a story’s most dramatic and revealing moment. It usually comes near the end of a story and satisfies the reader’s curiosity about what happens.

  • Falling Action: The falling action follows the climax and describes the results of the climax.
  • Resolution The resolution, or denouement, comes at the end of the falling action.
  • The Most Dangerous Game has a very late climax, therefore, the resolution and falling action occur in 1-2 paragraphs.
