Main characters: The Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood. The main protagonist in this
story is Red. The main antagonist in this story is the Wolf. She is
a dynamic character who changes by the end of the story.
Minor characters: Granny, mother, father (woodcutter).
Minor characters are flat and have only one or two characteristics
that never change. Theme: the truth about life or
moral lesson to be learned, main
idea of the story. The moral of this
story is: Stay on the path and be wary of strangers. Plot - the sequence of events in a story, 5 essential parts. Exposition: Beginning of the story where characters and setting are introduced. In Red Riding Hood, it's when we meet Red, meet her mother, and learn about her father, the woodcutter. We also find out why she needs to go through the woods. Rising action - the action that takes place to get to the climax of the story. The rising action in the story is when Red meets the wolf in the woods and when he pretends to be granny. Climax - the high point of the story.
The climax of the story is where the big bad wolf is about to eat Red. Falling action - events that take place
to tie up the loose ends. The falling
action would be where the wolf runs
away, afraid of the ax. Resolution - things that take place to tie up the loose ends.
This would be where the woodcutter walks Red home safely. Point of View - who is speaking to the reader? In Red Riding Hood, the story is told through third person omnicient point of view. We see how everyone is feeling. Mood - the atmosphere or feeling the writer creates. The mood created by the author is suspenseful and serious. Conflict - a struggle between two or more opposing forces. An example of external conflict is man vs animal when Red was confronted by the Wolf. Foreshadowing - used to build suspense or create tension. An example of this is when the wolf licks his lips. Irony - created when there is a contrast between what is expected and what is meant. An example of verbal irony is when the wolf says, "I hope she feels better" when he really meant "tastes better"! Diction - the author's choice of words. Remember denotation and connotation. The wolf "snarled." Setting: the time and place in a story. The setting in Red Riding Hood is the woods and granny's house in a fictional area.
