Choice 6: Analyze a Story Plot
- Read: Chapters 1-13 (to the end of 13) of Things Fall Apart.
For the week 6 RE: Use the first half of Things Fall Apart (or use the whole novel if you have read ahead)
Consider the Freytag plot model and narratology. Analyze how one story moves through the elements of plot. How does it adhere to or deviate from the model? How does it order and control the elements of plot to create suspense and interest? Does it employ foreshadowing or flashback? How do these fit into the Freytag order of plot elements? Write a two- to three-page analysis of how one or two texts employ the elements of plot. Include a works cited page if you use research in your paper.
