Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • "She stood by the window and looked out dully at a grey cat walking a grey fence in a grey backyard. Tomorrow would be Christmas Day, and she had only $1.87 with which to buy Jim a present."
  • Climax
  • "She had been saving every penny she could for months, with this result... Only $1.87 to buy a present for Jim. Her Jim. Many a happy hour she had spent planning for something nice for him."
  • Falling Action
  • ""Will you buy my hair?" asked Della. "Twenty dollars," said Madame. "Give it to me quick" said Della."
  • Resolution
  • "Jim, darling." she cried, "don't look at me that way. I had my hair cut off and sold because i couldn't have lived through Christmas without giving you a present. It'll grow out again--you won't mind, will you?
  • For there lay The Combs--the set of combs, side and back, that Della had worshiped long in a Broadway window... She held it out eagerly upon her open palm. The dull precious metal seemed to flash with a reflection of her bright and ardent spirit.
  • And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house.
