from 'some barbarous region'
wine has a very powerful affect on him
because of this, the kind found him even more amusing The story behind Hop-Frogs name... was not given to him during baptism

tried forcing Hop-Frog into doing something he hated (drinking wine)
threw wine in Tripettas face The King and Joking hearing, seeing and telling jokes seem to be what the king lives for
finds cruel jokes + practical jokes to be funny
seems to be obsessed with joking, the narrator emphasizes this by stating the word 'joke' many times The 7 Ministers also antagonists for the same reasons as the king
always agree with the king and make similar jokes as the king does
because of this, Hop-Frog also murders them king was ignorant towards Hop-Frog
king never saw Hop-Frog past his looks and disabilities and probably thought that he was only good for making him laugh
never suspected Hop-Frog would be capable to think of a scheme like 'the eight chained orangutans'
Hop-Frog proved that there was more of him than what he was biogically Conflict Person vs. Person Hop-Frog vs. the king and his ministers the king and the ministers are very cruel people
Hop-Frog has been treated badly
wants to escape the entrapment and be free
wants revenge for all the torture the antagonists caused to Tripetta and himself kingdom
masquerade party Emotional Transition might have been around the 17th or 18th century
had kings (that had more power) and court jesters at that time They were thought of as...
huge menacing beasts
lack of intelligence Orangutans were newly discovered at the time Nervousness Anger Anger Relief at first, when the king tried to forced him to drink wine, he felt nervous and uneasy
wine has a very powerful affect on him (madness) Hop-Frog's Emotional Transitions... Tripetta tried to stand up for Hop-Frog which caused to king to throw wine in Tripetta's face
the kings action caused Hop-Frog to feel angry when he was about to set the king and his ministers on fire
thought about all the cruelty they aimed on him and Tripetta after he killed the antagonists, he was free
was finally able to escape with Tripetta The King's Emotional Transition... Amused Angry when forcing Hop-Frog to drink wine, he found his struggling amusing
knew that Hop-Frog extremely loathed alcohol when Hop-Frog hesitated to obey the kings commands by drinking the wine
"The dwarf hesitated. The king grew purple with rage." Barbarous is another word for uncivilized Thank you for listening to my part of this presentation (: Do you have any questions concerning the main components of this narrative?
