Transcript of The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street

Protagonist- Pete

Pete shows in the story that he is protagonist by always being positive and thinking for the best. He never gets down and is always confident that everything is going to be fine.
Pete's Goal?
To Figure out what is going on in a positive way

Antagonist- Charlie

Charlie shows that he is the antagonist by the way he acts. He is very Impatient, pushy, and very touchy. Brute Force kind of guy.
Steps to block Pete?
He is always putting down what people say and won't listen to positive comments. He is also one raises Cain.
Secondary Characters
Steve, Les Goodman, and Tommy.

They are considered secondary because they are not directly involved in the conflict nor are they talked about very much.
What's the Point of View
We found that the point of view in this story is 3rd person. We say this because in the story we are looking at others in there own situation. We're not a part of it, were watching past events.
Setting and Place
The setting and place of this story is Maple street in the evening and night.
By Rod Serling
The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street
By Andrew Adamik, Nathan Litzinger, and Mike Elias
The conflict in the story is internal and external. The internal conflict inside they were turning on each other. The external conflict is the fighting between the people.
We find out in the exposition that these people live on Maple Street,have a neighborhood lifestyle, and were also introduced to the characters.
What's in the Rising Action and Climax
The characters' cell phones begin to shut off, there is an earthquake, and their cars don't seem to work.

The Story's climax is when the neighbors begin to turn on each other and begin to fight.
The Falling Action
The story's falling action is when the neighbors begin to set fire to the one house and also we see that the military is watching them. There really is no obvious resolution but that's what seems to wrap it up.
What is the Theme?
The theme of the story is to always stick together as a group and trust everyone along the way. In the story they all begin to turn on each other and begin to loose trust.
Literary Elements
As far as literary elements, we believe that forshadowing is the main literary element. We say this because throughout the whole story it's always leading up to the violence. The tone is kind of mysterious at times because no one knows what's going to happen next.
Author's Purpose
To wrap this all up, we think that the main idea of telling us this story is just to let everyone know that if you don't stick together through it all, chances are, you're not going to get very far.
The End
