Carolyn Polo Professor Ballard ENGL001A Week 1 Notes Class Notes from September 26, 2016 ❖ Narrative ➢ Exposition: sets up story by answering key questions​ ho was there/involved? Where did this happen? When did this happen? What happened? ➢ Start ➢ Climax ➢ Denouement: ties up the story ❖ Show don’t tell ➢ Description (comparisons: metaphors, similes) ■ Why Write​ ​by Paul Auster (read in class) had excellent description of the events which occurred at a summer camp during which someone is fatally struck by lightning. ➢ Dialogue ■ Calling Home​ by Jean Brandt (assigned reading in St. Martin’s Guide) uses dialogue to dramatize the experience Brandt had when she had to call her parents from jail. ➢ Don’t tell things in advance ➢ Thesis statements are unnecessary for narratives because they tend to give away details about the story. ***if anyone needs clarification or has any questions about these notes, please contact me at ​ ***Thanks for purchasing my notes! I hope they were helpful :)
