Day Three: plot, character, and setting in Themes
Transcript of Day Three: plot, character, and setting in Themes
Effects the main idea, which thereby effects the theme
Example: The Hunger Games is set in the future, in a dystopic society. Without the main idea of a futuristic dystopia, the message of the story would greatly change. Let's discuss. How would this change? Setting How does plot relate to theme? Plot How do the characters in a text
relate to theme? Character Question: How does setting relate to the theme? The plot is the action. Everything that happens is plot.
There can't be a message without having things happen in a story.
Example: If Katniss wasn't sent into the hunger games, the story couldn't have the message or theme of freedom through perseverance. A character naturally progresses the plot through his or her conflicts and wants, which in turn affects the theme.
Example: The Hunger Games would change drastically if Katniss did not care so much about her sister, Prim. How would this change the plot, and thereby message? 8th Agenda for Today:
