Plot Diagram
Literary Elementes
When Mr. Nuttel spots the figures walking through the brush.

"In a chill shock of nameless fear Framton swung around in his seat and looked in the same direction." (pg.197
Rising Action
This is when Mrs. Framton says that the boys should be back any moment from shooting.

"My husband and brothers will be home directly from shooting, and they always come in this way." (pg.197)
Narrative Hook
The niece tells Mr. Nuttel the story of how the husband and brothers never came back from snipe-shooting.

"Out through that window, three years ago to a day, her husband and her two young brothers went off for their day's shooting. They never came back" (pg. 1960
The conflict type is man vs. man, because he is scared of ghosts and ghosts are in your head.

An intentionally exaggerated figure of speech for emhasis of (e.g, this book weighs a ton).

Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Setting- They are in the house waiting for the aunt to come downstairs.
"My aunt will be down presently, Mr. Nuttel", said a very self-possessed young lady of fifteen. (pg. 195)

Characters- Protagonist is Mr. Nuttel
Antagonist- The Niece
Supporting Characters- Mrs. Sappleton

The theme of the story is never go into the house of a lady with an open window.

One more thing would be never ask things that you don't want to know like the guy asked about the window .
The real theme of the story is to never live the window open you never know what may come in.
The use of words that sound like what they mean leg buz and pure a poetic to produce this effect
This susainet interest created by buildup of events and delayed resolution of the plot's conflict
enough to make any one loose there nerve Pg.198
Falling Action
The falling action occurs when Mr. Nuttel starts to panic and then grabs his hat and stick before he bolts out of the house.

"Framton grabbed wildly at his stick and hat; the hall door, the gravel drive, and the front gate were dimly noted stages in headlonged retreat.'' (pg.198)
This is just after Mr. Nuttel runs out of the house and when the husband and brothers just return home.
"Could only talk about his illnesses, and dashed off without a word of goodbye or apology when you arrived. One would think he had seen a ghost." (pg. 198)
