Plot Outline: The Ransom of Red Chief
Transcript of Plot Outline: The Ransom of Red Chief
Conflict is when there is the struggle between two opposing forces. The conflict in the story "The Ransom of Red Chief" is external because it is clearly man vs. man. The fights of Johnny and Bill is an example of how Bill tries to scare the kid but fails because Johnny outsmarts him to doing what he says. this evidence is similar to conflict because as soon as Bill becomes tired of being picked on he will soon tell Sam to do something about Johnny.
Climax is the most interesting part of the story or "turning point". In the story "The Ransom of Red Chief" is when Bill and Sam can't stand Johnny. Evidence that shows this is when Johnny put a red hot potato on Bill's back and stepped on it, nobody seems to notice Johnny is gone which means they're plan might not work, and how Old Dorset doesn't seem to mind his son is gone. This evidence shows the conflict because the plan has had a turning point where there plan can come to a dead end.
Conclusion is when the author concludes all falling action by revealing or suggesting the outcome of conflict. The resolution of the story "The Ransom of Red Chief" is when both Bill and Sam return Johnny back. Evidence that reveals this is when Bill talks to Sam of how much he has been beaten by Johnny, how they ended up paying Old Dorset to get rid of Johnny, and when they never try to kidnap ever again due to what happened with Johnny.
Irony is a technique that reveals a discrepancy between what appears to be and what is actually true. In the story "The Ransom of Red Chief" is when Bill and Sam want Old Dorset to pay them by kidnapping his son Johnny in order for Old Dorset to pay them their money. this is an example of situational irony because insted of Old Dorset paying them money, they end up paying him to get rid of Johnny. This evidence shows situational irony because the reversal of what they wanted happened.
Mood is how the author wants the reader to feel about the story. After the story, the author (Sam) I say wants you to feel surprised. Surprised mood is formed by how they end up paying money to Old Dorset to get rid of his rude, annoying son. Evidence to prove this is how they get a note from Old Dorset saying to pay him cash to bring back his son and get him off their hands. Also, they do as what Old Dorset says, they pay him money and get rid of Johnny.
