Transcript of The Journey on Great Titanic: Diary of Margaret Anne Brady

Background Knowledge
Margaret Ann Brady is an orphan in London. Her brother abandoned her in front of the orphanage when she was only eight years old, then headed off to America hoping to get a well-paying job so he can set up a good life for Margaret later on.
Where they are
In the beginning of the story, the main character-Margaret- is at an orphanage called Saint Abernathy's in London.

Then later on in the story, the characters are on the Titanic in the middle of the Atlantic.

At the end of the book, the characters are in America.
When did she write the Diary?
Margaret Ann Brady-or the writer of the diary- wrote it beginning March 28, 1912 to April 20, 1912. The way she shows this in the story is by her wording and the wording of other characters in the story. Also, she mentions having to help Mrs. Carstairs with putting on her slip and other fancy, old fashioned clothing items.
What happens
Margaret is accompanying a woman to America on the RMS Titanic. When the ship is hit by an iceberg, she must try her best to survive. And being a stewardess, this is hard for her. She makes good friends with another steward so he helps her stay safe but is unable to save himself. Margaret then takes a ride on the Carpathia (the rescue ship) to complete the voyage to New York and eventually meets up with her brother, William.
What is it?
The book is a series of journal entries written by a passenger of the RMS Titanic during the time she was on the ship and a little background knowledge about the characters was added to get the story started.

Margaret Ann
Robert is a hard-worker
In the story, Robert shows that he is a hard-worker by:

-He is always serving his guests on the Titanic even when they don't ask him.
-He is a very young boy that works for very little money just because he likes working.
Robert is nice
In the story, Robert shows that he is nice by:

-He sits down and accompanies Margaret every morning for breakfast.
-He tells Margaret how to survive and where to go to get to the lifeboats once she came back for him.
Robert is kind
In the story, Robert shows that he is kind by:

-Telling Margaret every morning that she is beautiful.
-He brings Margaret extra breakfast because she is so nice to him.
The central conflicts are when Margaret is on the Titanic, it hits an iceberg and she ends up choosing between friendship (saving Robert) or saving herself. This is an internal conflict. The other conflict in the story is when Margaret has to fight to survive in the freezing winter oceans. This is an external conflict between man and nature.
The Exposition is when Margaret Ann Brady boards the Titanic as a stewardess for Mrs. Carstairs. She is excited because she hadn't seen her brother in five years and she has never been to America.
Rising Action
The rising action is when Margaret feels the ship hit something and she is beginning to get a little concerned. So she goes down to the boat deck to see people (including the captain) panicking.
The climax of the story is when Margaret finds out that the ship has hit an iceberg and is told that she needs to evacuate the ship immediately. Then she refuses to leave the ship until she finds Robert and makes sure he is alright.
Falling Action
The falling action of the story is when Margaret gets on a lifeboat and rows away from the sunken ship. Her lifeboat is safely headed to New York and she is still in shock from the sinking of her ship. However the lifeboat is filled with ice cold water and all the members aboard are riding very cold and are becoming sick.
The resolution in the story is when Margaret is rescued from her lifeboat along with other members from the Titanic by The Carpathia. That ship then takes them to New York and supplies them with food and water and warmth.
I think that the theme of this story was upsetting and sympathetic. I think this because the author of the story really exaggerates how awful the sinking of the Titanic is. For example, on pages 100-118, she uses very descriptive words such as horrifying, awful, freezing, screams of death, in loving memory of, sorrow, etc. She really makes the story come alive in her writing technique.
The authors purpose for this story was to inform the reader how the story Titanic was such so sad and depressing. She wanted to let us know that hundreds of innocent people died and how lucky the survivors were to have lived through that experience. I think that the author wanted to inform us of the event with a bias from her perspective.
