The setting is at a laboratory.", in the surgical room, and at a factory where Charlie works as the janitor. The main characters are Charlie, Miss Kinnian, Dr. Strauss, and Dr. Numer."Tonight after work Miss Kinnian was at the laboratory."(683).
There are several rising actions the first one is when Miss Kinnian asked Charlie if he wants to do the Experiment. "They said that maybe they will still use me."(673). The second rising action is when Charlie starts to get feelings for Miss Kinnian. "I don't understand why I never noticed how beautiful Miss Kinnian really is."(695).Then comes the third action which is when he quits his job."Ive quite my job with Donnegan's Plastic Box Company."(696). The forth is when Algernon bites Charlie out of no where... "It happened today. Algernon bit me. I visited the lab to see him as I occasionally, and when I took him out of his cage, he snapped at my hand" (702).
The basic action would be when Charlie wakes up and a month later it seems like the surgery worked for him. This is because he was getting smarter and his grammar was getting better especially his IQ. By this point with his IQ he is smarter then most of the doctors. "Dr.Stratuss on the other hand might be called a genius, although I feel that his areas of knowledge are too limited."(698).
Charlie before his surgery working
The falling action would be when Charlie gets bit by Algernon. Charlie thinks the surgery isn't working for the mouse so he starts to think that the surgery isn't going to work for himself. "It happened today. Algernon bit me. I visited the lab the lab to see him as I occasionally do, and when I took him out of his cage, he snapped at my hand"(702).
The resolution would be when Charlie wanted to have someone put flowers on Algernon's grave in the backyard. "P.P.S. Please if you get a chanse put some flowers on Algernon's grave in the back yard....."(711).
The theme of the story would be, it is you don't always have to be like everyone else. "I can't wait to be smart like my best friends Joe Carp and Frank Reilly."(682). This quote is him showing that he wants to be something he isn't by changing himself.
