Darzee A tailorbird from the garden Nagaina Female black cobra, Nag's wife Setting: The locational setting of Rikki-tikki-tavi is at house and garden in India The mood and atmosphere of the story ranges from optimistic to fearful. Social conditions are irrelevant to this story. The weather conditions are neutral. Plot: Introduction Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution Character traits: Brave, curious, young, hero Character traits:
Innocent, carefree Character traits: Dangerous,
self-centered The setting of a Segowlee cantonment in India is introduced. Rikki-tikki is introduced as a washed up mongoose. Other characters, such as Teddy and his father are introduced. Rikki-tikki meets Nag and fights with him for the first time. Rikki-tikki comes to the rescue when Teddy encounters Karait. Rikki-tikki kills Nag and searches for Nagaina and her eggs. Rikki crushes Nagaina's eggs and follows her into her burrow. The animals of the garden do not expect him to return. Rikki-tikki returns from Nagaina's burrow victorious The Coppersmith informs the garden that they are no longer in danger. Rikki-tikki, the family, and the rest of the garden is safe from Nag and Nagaina Conflict: Man vs. Man The conflict of the story is man versus man
because a character (Rikki-tikki) physically fights other
characters (cobras) (Internal) Point of view: Theme: Courage A possible theme of
Rikki-tikki-tavi is: Courage can come
in any shape or size. Underdogs You shouldn't underestimate
an underdog. Another possible theme of
Rikki-tikki-tavi is: Third Person Limited The narrator of the story doesn't
participate as one of the characters, and his knowledge
is limited to one character. Critique: I enjoyed reading Rikki-tikki-tavi
for my short story novel. In my opinion, Rikki-tikki-tavi is a timeless novel that is relatable to almost every reader.
