2 Ravi is the protagonist Dedicated – Fearful – Immature – Stubborn - “After standing in that position- his hand still on his neck, feeling the wet splodge of the squashed spider gradually dry- for minutes, hours, his legs began to tremble with effort, the inaction.” (pg. 125) “What might there not be to touch him and feel him as he stood there, trying to see in the dark? Something cold or slimy- like a snake. Snakes!” (pg 125) “Stop it, stop it Ravi. Don’t be a baby. Did you hurt yourself?” (pg. 127) “I won, I won, I won,” he bawled, shaking his head so that the big tears flew. “Raghu didn’t find me. I won, I won -“(pg 127)

3 Plot Introduction Inciting Event Rising Action Crisis Major Crisis Climax Falling Action Conclusion

4 Narrative point of view/Significance of title Third Person Limited “He felt himself too exposed, sitting on an upturned flower pot behind the garage.” (Games at Twilight, page 126) Games At Twilight “Could he hear the children’s voices? It seemed to him that he could. It seemed to him that he could hear them chanting, singing, laughing. But what about the game? What had happened? Could it be over? How could it when he was still not found?” (Games at Twilight, page 126). At Twilight, it seems that people forget about the stress of the day’s events and go on to relax and have fun. Inside one characters thoughts

5 Hyperbole- “… stifled the children, making them feel as if their lungs were stuffed with wool.” (pg. 122) makes reader feel how the children feel Personification- “The scent of earth receiving water, slaking its thirst in great gulps …” (pg. 126) gives reader information on the scent and also the heat and feeling of the air and atmosphere Simile- “His paws and ears and tail all reaching out like dying travellers in search of water.” (pg. 123) makes reader virtualize the way the dog was laying Imagery- “… the light at the door grew soft, fuzzier, turned to a kind of crumbling yellow pollen that turned to yellow fur, blue fur, grey fur” (pg. 126) gives setting information for visualizing. Literary Devices

6 Person vs Person Their mother wouldn’t let them play outside but they wailed enough that she unlocked the door and they “-burst out like seeds from a cracking overripe pod...” (pg 122)

7 Person vs Self “Only in the veranda – the porch – ma said – ma said to stay in the porch!” (pg 123) He thought everyone cheated in the game when they were to pick who was it. Although no one was close enough to hear or had stopped running to listen to what he was saying.

8 Person vs Self/Society “He lay down full length on the damp grass, crushing his face into it, no longer crying, silenced by a terrible sense of insignificance.” (pg 128) Ravi was in the shed all alone, everything was quiet. When he came out of hiding he found all the other kids playing another game and this made him angry. Person vs Self/Society

9 Themes Forgetfulness “He had forgotten. He had only remembered the part of hiding and trying to elude the seeker.” (pg 127) Insignificants “But he had been forgotten, left out and he would not join now.” (pg 128) “ ‘Don’t be a fool’ Raghu said roughly, pushing him aside.” “Stop howling Ravi. If you want to play, you can stand at the end of the line.” (pg 128) “He lay down full length on the damp grass, crushing his face into it, no longer crying, silenced by a terrible sense of insignificance.” (pg 128)
