aging princess together with the lady-in-waiting who defines royalty and modesty through their actions. The may want to point out that sometimes opinions of people is based on their knowledge, experiences and in their own stories. These people served as the foils in the story since they helped the readers to know a little bit more about the main character. One of the important characters, for me, is the little girl with an untidy hair. She was the one who brought the answer to all the questions and thoughts of the people who watched Bibi as he performed. Still, no one believed on what she said. Even the boy that's with him knew that it was impossible for them to be like Bibi and it’s because of

their social status. Maybe when the time the writer wrote this story, opinions from lower classes were not considered and he might want to point it out to his readers. In case of the plot, the writer started the story by detailedly describing the main character which is the prodigy. Then explained the structure of the setting and things around his character. Then the rising action is when the narrator tells about the thoughts of the other characters individually, towards Bibi and his performance. In this part, the writer shows how the opinions and thoughts of people differ from each other because they have their own experiences and knowledge. The climax is when the concert ended and how the attention of the people was separated. Half of the crowd went to the royals and not to the star of the concert which is Bibi. The writer showed how right was Bibi's thoughts are. The audience does not really recognize his talent. The falling action is when the writer introduced the rich siblings who are on their way home after the concert. The writer described how they looked and how wealthy they are. They met the untidy- haired girl that is accompanied by a young boy on their way. That is when the little girl exclaimed that “We are all prodigies, we artists.”. There was a dead silence after that and it symbolizes that people turned blind eye to what the girl has said. The denouement is when the little girl can’t do anything but to look at the rich siblings until they were gone from her sight. They were poor, unlike the siblings and she envies them for that. The writer started the story by introducing a successful child and then ending it by introducing another child character who has opposite characteristic from the lead character. The girl is the one who brought the answer to what prodigy really means. The way the writer end it made me realize what is the main point of the story. It seems that Mann’s characters were all static because the beliefs and thoughts of people about the infant prodigy did not change even after hearing what the untidy-haired girl said. Even Bibi did not change, he’s still didn’t show his true self until the very end.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
