10 Exposition The Exposition is the introduction. It is the part of the work that introduces the characters, setting, and basic situation.

11 Rising Action Rising Action is the part of the plot that begins to occur as soon as the conflict is introduced. The rising action adds complications to the conflict and increases reader interest.

12 Climax The Climax is the point of greatest emotional intensity, interest, or suspense in the plot of a narrative. The climax typically comes at the turning point in a story or drama.

13 Falling Action Falling Action is the action that typically follows the climax and reveals its results.

14 Resolution The Resolution is the part of the plot that concludes the falling action by revealing or suggesting the outcome of the conflict.

15 Conflict Conflict is the struggle between opposing forces in a story or play. There are two types of conflict that exist in literature.

16 Flashback A flashback is a literary device in which an earlier episode, conversation, or event is inserted into the sequence of events.

17 Foreshadowing Foreshadowing is the author’s use of clues to hint at what might happen later in the story.

18 Suspense Suspense is the growing interest and excitement readers experience while awaiting a climax or resolution in a work of literature. It is a feeling of anxious uncertainty about the outcome of events.

19 Point of View Point of View is the perspective, or vantage point, from which a story is told. It is the relationship of the narrator to the story. First-person is told by a character who uses the first-person pronoun “I”. Third-person limited point of view is the point of view where the narrator uses third- person pronouns such as “he” and “she” to refer to the characters.
