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.
Dramatic Plot Structure 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.
