A Wrinkle in Time
Book By: Madeleine L'engle
Prezi By: C. E. L. Characterization:
My choice is Meg Murray. Meg thinks that she is ugly because of her glasses and her braces. She thinks that she does not belong in her family because of her apperance. Her mother is beautiful and Meg is not so beautiful. At least that is what she thinks. She meets a boy named Calvin who seems to like her for who she is. She is very curious to find out more about her father and what he does. Others say that she is just another girl who is trying to be someone who wants to fit in. They say that she is a nobody. She cares very deeply about her brother, Charles Wallace and her mother and her twin brothers. She wants to know everything at the exact moment she wants to know it. She is very protective of her family and of her father. She cares very much about Calvin, also. She is very interested in where her father is and what he is doing. This Prezi is about the book A Wrinkle in Time. I have read this book in my Moodle class. This Prezi consists of Literary concepts. I hope you enjoy this Prezi. I enjoyed reading this book!! Theme: Love
One supporting detail for this theme is how Calvin and Meg always hold hands.
One other detail is how Mrs. Murry writes to Mr. Murry every day beacuse she misses him and loves him very much.
One last detail is how Meg has been chosen to fight the Dark Thing by Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which. They choose her beacuse she has the greatest power of all. They choose her out of the love they have for Meg. Plot:
>The plot is basically a series of casual events involving cause and effect. Meg Murry, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe meet three women who have very unique personalities and very interesting things that these women can do. The cause to these three women meeting the three kids is that all three of the women moved into a so-called "haunted-house" in the woods behind the Murry's house. Meg and Charles Wallace Murry meet a boy named Clavin O'Keefe on their way to walk their dog Fortenbraus. The three women have moved into the haunted house and one of the women's name is Mrs. Whatsit. Mrs. Whatsit comes to visit the Murrys. She says that she can smell out where Charles Wallace is. It seems that Charles Wallace already knows Mrs. Whatsit. The effect is that all three women and all three children come very close to each other.
One other cause is when the three women who's names are Mrs. Whatsit Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which by the way, go with the three children to try and find Meg and Charles's father who has been gone for years becuase he works for the government and he never came back from one of his missions. The effect was that they found Their father and they get to have him back with them.
One other cause for an event is when Charles Wallace gets hypnotized by a bad man called The Man with the Red Eyes. Charles Wallace thinks that everything is alright when he is being controlled.
The effect is on everyone around him. He is hypnotized for a very long time and he is not himslef. The effect is not a very good one.
The last cause for an event is Mr. Murry tessering through a very dark and bad thing. Meg, Calvin, Meg's father accidently end up on a planet that is very odd. They get taken care of by beasts that live on this planet.
The effect id very good in this situation. Meg finds that these beasts will try and help them to get Charles Wallace. back. They had left him on Camazotz when they tessered. They get ot go back to their home and defeat the Dark Thing. The Rising Action:
This story is mainly about kids who are traveling in space and in the fifth demension. Before this story begins, Meg and Charles Wallace Murry have their father mysteriously disappear. All of these characters try to find the missing father is a very mysterious way!! They travel around in space and "tesser" which means to basically time travel. One of the main characters is Meg Murry. One other main character is Charles Wallace Murry, Megs brother. Their good friend Clavin is also a main character. They meet 3 women named Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which. Conflict:
The conflict is with The Man With the Red Eyes. This man lives in a town called Camazotz. his toen is ona planet somwehere in the fifth demension. The Man With the Red Eyes has hypnotized Charles Wallace. Meg and Calvin O'Keefe have to try to get the real Charles Wallace back, but the Man With the Red Eyes will never let the real Charles Wallace show. The Man With the Red Eyes can not be convinced. While they try to solve the conflict with The Man With the Red Eyes, they have to try to find their father in a certain cell in the town jail of Camazotz. Climax:
The climax in this story is when the hypnotized Chalres Wallace leads Meg and Calvin down a corrider in the palce where The Man With the Red Eyes is living. Meg and Clavin see Meg's dad in a cell. Tension is very high at this point becuase the reader doesn't know if Meg and Charles Wallace's dad is going to be set free of the cell or IT, or if Meg will not be allowed to take her fathr home. Maybe the Man With the Red Eyes will have conditions for a prisoner to be released. Maybe they will have to deal with IT in order for her father to be released. You don't know what is going to happen in this part of the story. That is why it is called a climax. Point of View:
This story has a point of view on third-person. Third-person like a person who is watching the story as it goes along. This "person" seems to know what all of the characters are thinking and what they are going to do or feel in the next part of the story. Third-person is a very common point of view in most stories people read. This story is one book that has a third-person point of view. Falling Action:
Meg and Chalres Wallace's father tries to find IT and get Charles Wallace un-hypnotized and try to get off of the planet Camazotz and get back to their home on earth. They go to It and Chalres Wallace gets un-hypnotized. They have to battle the Dark Thing and they win against the Dark Thing. Generalization:

Response: "I went to Smith College and studied English with some awesome teachers as I read classic stories. I continued to do my own creative writing.

Response: "I met a man named Hugh Franklin and we got married during The Joyous Season. I did have a baby girl and kept on writing, eventually moving to Connecticut to raise the family away from the city in a small dairy farm village with more cows than people.

Me and the family kept the country house, Crosswicks, and continue to spend summers there.
5th question: "What kind of hors or awards did you win while writing books??"
Response: "I won lots of awards, medals and prizes won by the individual books i had written. I personally received many honors over the period of 9 years.

Response: "Well, I have written alot of books, but here are some examples, I brought a paper with me that lists some of the books I have written. Hold on let me get it out. Ah here it is!!

Response: " Well, some of the main genres that I have written are fiction, poetry, essays, and science fiction. I have enjoyed writing in those genres more than any other."

9th question: "When was the first time you had ever written a story??"
Response: "I had written my first story at age five, and began keeping a journal at age eight. The early journals and stories I wrote didn't translate into sucess at school. I had to get enrolled into a school called the New York City private school.

Response: "I was a shy, clumsy child, I was accused of being as stupid as some of my teachers. I didn't really please any of my teachers, she left into my own world of books and writing.

There are 3 protagonists. Meg Murry is a protagonist beacuse she is one of the main characters in the book. One other protagonist is Calvin O'Keefe. He is one other protagonist beacuse he is a main chracter. The last protagonist is Charles Wallace Murry. He is another protagonisr because he is one of the main characters. One antagonist is Meg's twin brohters. they aren't very important to the story and don't serve a big role in the story. That si what an ntagonist means. One flat character is The Man with The Red Eyes. He is a flat chracter becuase he is like the bad person in the story along with The Dark Thing. One example of a round character is Mrs. Whatsit. Mrs Whatsit is very hard to understnd. She is complex and complicated, which is what round characters means. One examlpe of a dynamic chracter is Meg. Meg changes throughout the story. She realises that she is beautiful, she realises that she is not perfect and never will be her perfect, and she realises that other people love her for who she is.
