Storyboard Text

  • The author establishes the exposition when he says, "Whitney remarks 'Off there to the right---somewhere---is a large island'" (Cornell 60). Also when he states, "Trying to peer through the dank tropical night that was palpable as it pressed its thick warm blackness  in upon the yacht" (Cornell 60).
  • Exposition
  • The author establishes the inciting incident when he states, "He lunged for it; a short, hoarse cry came from his lips as he realized he had reached too far and had lost his balance. The cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head" (Cornell 63).
  • Inciting Incident
  • The author creates rising action when he tells the reader, "That had been a placid pastime compared to his digging now. The pit grew deeper; when it was above his shoulders...he knew his pursuer was coming" (Cornell 78).
  • Rising Action
  • The author creates the climax when he states, "'Nerve, nerve, nerve!'" he panted, as he dashed along. A blue gap showed between the trees dead ahead. Ever nearer drew the hounds. Rainsford forced himself on toward that gap. He reached it. It was the shore of the sea. Across a cove he could see the gloomy gray stone of the chateau. Twenty feet below him the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea…" (Cornell 80)
  • Climax
  • The author establishes the rising action when he says "'Rainsford!" screamed the general. 'How in God's name did you get here?"'Swam,' said Rainsford. 'I found it quicker than walking through the jungle.'The general sucked in his breath and smiled. 'I congratulate you," he said. "You have won the game'" (Cornell 80).
  • Falling Action
  • Congratulations!
  • The author creates the resolution when he states "Rainsford did not smile. 'I am still a beast at bay,' he said, in a low, hoarse voice. 'Get ready, General Zaroff.'The general made one of his deepest bows. 'I see," he said. 'Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford… 'He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided" (Cornell 80).
