The introduction introduces you to the little match girl and tells you she can't go home. She can't go home because her dad said she couldn't until she sold some matches.

The climax in the story is when she has used all the matches and on the last match she is flying with her grandmother.
the little match girl is a main character. she is a major character in the story because the story is about her. she is also dynamic. she is dynamic because she went from being alive to freezing to death.

"The Little Match Girl"
the grandmother is a minor character. she is also static. she is their when the girl is dying.
mood + tone
the mood + tone of the story is sad that the little match girl can't go home and you feel helpless that you can't help the little match girl when shes freezing cold.
I think that maybe the story is to tell how the little match girl is poor and she spent her holiday selling matches. So maybe the theme is trying to show you how some people spend there holiday when there in poverty and don't have any money to have a wonderful dinner with a turkey or ham and rolls and potatoes and have a wonderful holiday.
the protagonist is the girl
the antagonist is the weather and her family for not letting her come back until she sells matches

This story was a man vs. nature story she has to fight the weather but it is to cold
reasons why its the theme
1."But in the corner, at the cold hour of dawn, sat the poor girl, with rosy cheeks and with a smiling mouth, leaning against the wall--frozen to death on the last evening of the old year."
2."In this cold and darkness there went along the street a poor little girl, bareheaded, and with naked feet."
3."She crept along trembling with cold and hunger--a very picture of sorrow, the poor little thing!"
