Stephen King
" It was time to teach them a lesson. Time to show them a thing or two. She giggled hysterically. It was one of Momma's pet phrases. There was the sprinkler system. She could turn it on, turn it on easily. She giggled again and got up, and began to walk barefoot back toward the lobby doors. Turn on the sprinkler system and close all the doors. Look in and let them see her looking in watching and laughing while the shower ruined their dresses and their hairdos and took the shine off their shoes. Her only regret was that it couldn't be blood." pg 193

Point of view
Inciting Moment
Character development
Set in the small town of Chamberlain, Main. Carrie goes to the Thomas Ewen Highschool. The year is 1979.
The point of view is manly 3rd person, but can sometimes be 1st and 2nd. There are also fake excerpts from newspapers, magazines, and books.
The inciting moment would start when the prank is pulled on Carrie and shes seeks revenge.
I would say that the theme is what goes around comes around. Carrie had been harassed horribly by her classmates and when she reached her breaking point they suffered just as much as she had through out the years.
Man vs Man - Because it was carrie against her mother, her schoolmates, and eventually the town.
Man vs Self - Carrie struggles with her own insecurities. Also with courage to stand up to her mom.
Carrie starts the book being very passive. If anyone made fun of her she would put her head down and walk away, never fighting. If her mother told her to go to the closet she might plead a little, but never augured.
By the end she builds up enough power to stand up to her mother, someone she has feared her whole life. She also has enough courage to go into the dance even though it makes her a little uneasy.
Along with her mental strength her telekinetic strength grows as well. She could do anything she wanted if she set her mind to it. Before she could barley lift a hair brush of the ground with her powers
When Carrie got into a fight with her mom when she was three and her mom was going to try and kill her, but she was stopped when it started raining stones on their house. It foreshadowed that Carrie had strong telekinetic powers.
The whole book the kids try to inflict as much pain as possible onto Carrie, but in the end they are the ones who are hurt.
There an example of symbolism when Chris goes with her boyfriend to go kill a pig to get the blood for the prank. Her boyfriend asked why they needed specifically pigs blood. She said, "pigs blood for a pig." insinuating that Carrie was a pig. A pig being a symbol of someone lazy, dirty and fat
The crisis after the inciting moment is that Carrie is easily destroying the whole down by flooding the street and breaking the electrical poles and lighting gas stations on fire. Almost no one can call for help because their dead. When help does come from another town there's not much they can do without killing themselves.
