Subplots:

Copy Only Blue Text

  • Plots that are part of the larger story but are not as important.
  • The prefix sub- means “under” or “less important than.”
  • Example: In William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the major plot involves the couples of Hermia, Lysander, Helena, and Demetrius but there are also several subplots. These include the struggles of the acting troupe and Titania and Oberon’s feud
slide4

Parallel Episodes:

  • Repeated scenes. The storyteller repeats the main outline of an episode several times within a work.
  • Example: In A Midsummer Night’s Dream William Shakespeare presents several parallel episodes of mixed up love: Hermia and Demetrius, Helena and Lysander, Titania and the ass, Bottom and Titania.
  • The author gives the same storyline in similar parallel forms.

Conflict:

External Conflict: The character struggles against outside forces.(person, group, nature)

Summarizing a Plot:

Most plots can be summarized by using a strategy called somebody wanted but so.

Somebody is the main character(s).

Wantedis what that character(s) want.

But means the complications that develop that make it harder

for the character(s) to get what he/ she wants.

So is how it all works out in the end.

Example: Lysander and Hermia want to get married but are forbidden by her father so they are forced to run away into a forest where their love gets all mixed up, but things work out in the end and they are finally allowed to marry each other.
