Transcript of Dolores Claiborne

Claiborne Vera
Donovan Joe
St. George Selena
St. George Works for Vera Abusive INSANE Daughter Has been abused Alcoholic Rich LONELY Dolores Dolores is a dynamic character In the beginning she takes the abuse from her husband, but in the end she gets her revenge. Setting The setting of this story takes place on an island of Maine. The genre is Realistic Fiction Plot The main conflict of the story is that Vera
Donovan has died and the don't know who
has killed her. The inciting incident is when the cops begin questioning Dolores about Vera's death.
This introduces the conflict because she tells her life story to the cops, all the way up to Vera Donovan's death. The conflict is resolved when Dolores tells the cops that she did not kill Vera Donovan. Characters Theme The purpose for writing this novel was to entertain the audience. The theme of this story is to treat others the way you would want to be treated.
The reader can learn that karma is a "bite in the butt". What goes around comes back around, and if you are mean and abusive, you could end up dead at the bottom of a well. I do recommend this book! I defiantly recommend this book, unless you aren't a big fan a little gore and a good story line... Other than that its really great! If you are into a little blood and guts (like me) than you will love the scene where Dolores kills Joe! Stephen King goes into so much detail, you can literally hear his teeth shatter! But if you like just a good story, then read it to find out how awesome Dolores is. And how strong she is for not only putting up with an abusive husband, but also a very strict and senile employer. The Author Stephen King Stephen Edwin King was born September 21st 1947
in Portland, Maine. From 1966, King studied English at the University of Maine, graduating in 1970 with a Bachelor of Arts in English. In 1973, King's first novel Carrie was accepted by publishing house Doubleday. His advance for Carrie was $2,500, with paperback rights earning $400,000 at a later date. King has been a writer his whole life! On June 19, 1999 at about 4:30 pm, King was walking on Route 5, in Lovell, Maine when Bryan Smith, distracted by an unrestrained dog moving in the back of his minivan, hit King with his vehicle! King landed on the ground about 14 feet from the pavement.
His injuries were, a collapsed right lung, multiple fractures of his right leg, scalp laceration and a broken hip. They kept him at the hospital until July 9! His leg bones were so shattered doctors initially considered amputating his leg, but stabilized the bones in the leg with an external fixator. After five operations in ten days and physical therapy, King resumed work on "On Writing" in July, though his hip was still shattered and he could only sit for about forty minutes before the pain became nearly unbearable.
