Transcript of Two Friends by Guy de Maupassant

Our AWESOME Prezi will be on the story...
The story is about two friends who wanted peace among the French and the Prussian's but ended up losing their lives instead
- Friendship
Theme: True friends stay loyal to each other even at the face of death.
Theme: Peace is non existent in humanity because it's hard to have peace due to war and humans are greedy.
Theme: As long as there are possessions that humans hold dear, there will always be war.
Direct / Indirect
M. Morrisot:
1. Direct - " And fishing! AH! Nothing but a pleasant memory "
Indirect - Fishing was a daily routine for him and was a very important aspect of life and he misses it.
M. Sauvage:
1. Direct - " They're worse than animals "
Indirect - He thinks people are stupid for killing each other, he's against war.
1. Direct - " Tell me the password and i will pardon you "
Indirect - They're probably soldiers in war and needed a password, just doing their job.

Exposition -
Characters: M. Sauvage, M. Morrisot, Prussians
Setting: 1871-1877 France
Conflict: The two friends didn't have the password and just wanted to fish.
Rising Action - When the Prussians showed up, the two friends stopped fishing and the Prussians pointed guns at them and asked for the password.
Climax - They were killed by the Prussians because they didn't say anything.
They never spoke more than a few words to each other a day let alone other people.
Falling Action - When the two friends were thrown in the river by the Prussian guards and officer.
Resolution - When the officer told the guards to take their fish and eat it.
People are always going to hold bonds together even today. There is still no peace because wars are in Iraq and the Middle East. Even though there are wars, there is peace all around the world in some places and that peace is held by true friends. Even through hard times, they build each other up through times of despair.
