Phase 2 Discussion Board 2 Phase 2 Discussion Board: Literary Elements Prof. Kauffman and Classmates, This post is to describe and discuss the literary elements of plot, character, setting, and point of view. I will start with the “Plot.” All fictional writing contains a drama element referred to as a “conflict.” The progression of the conflict, within the story line, is the plot (Literary Elements, 2010, para. 1). More specifically speaking, the plot progresses in the following manner: Exposition: An introducing of elements that give setting, creates the style or tone, introduces the characters of the story, and further gives us (the reader) all the information necessary to understand the storyline. Foreshadowing: Hints of what may or will happen in the story. Inciting Force: What triggers the conflict The Conflict: What creates the Plot of the story.
