Huck’s eyes. An example of third-person point of view is Dickens’ Hard Times , in which the narrator is not a character in the book. Resolution – the part of the story in which all the problems are solved and/or the secrets revealed. Rising Action – the part of the story’s plot that adds complications to the problems and increases the reader’s interest. Setting – when and where the short story, play, or novel takes place. Examples : Macbeth takes place in the eleventh century in Scotland. The Old Man and the Sea has its main setting on the ocean outside Havana, Cuba, in an unspecified time in the middle-to-late 20 th -century. Supporting Character – a secondary character that contributes, in varying importance, to the plot. Example : Tom Sawyer in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn . Symbol – an object, person, or place that has a meaning in itself and that also stands for something larger than itself, usually an idea or concept; some concrete thing which represents an abstraction. Example : The sea could be symbolic for “the unknown.” Since the sea is something that is physical and can be seen by the reader, and also has elements that cannot be understood, it can be used symbolically to stand for the abstraction of “mystery,” “obscurity,” or “the unknown.”

    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.
