1. the rockpile james baldwin 1924-1987 sean perkins 6th period 5-11-18
elizabeth is the mama of john and roy and married to gabriel gabriel is roys daddy and elizabeth husband roy is the son of Elizabeth and Gabriel john is Elizabeth illegitimate son delilah is Gabriel and Elizabeth, daughter paul is Gabriel and Elizabeth, son gabriel favorite son is roy he blamed John for Roy going to the rockpile lizabeth defended john
the exposition tells you about the people in the story and their relationship with each other. one event was when Elizabeth told both of them to not go to the rockpile but only looked at Roy. another is when Gabriel tried to blame John for Roy going to the rockpile and Elizabeth defending him.
the main conflict is when Roy got hi with the can and everybody was worried about what Gabriel would say and when he got there he tried to blame John for hin going to the rockpile.
gabriel babyed roy and tryed to blame john for not protecting him and said he was going to whoop him with a strap and elizabeth jumps in and said that he was not going to whop him with no strap.
the theme oof the story could be family drama and to me the storry was a bit dumb well on gabriel part fa getting mad a john fa roy getting hit with a tin can it wasnt john fault the he got hit its was his fault fa going and his mom said that he shouldnt go so she should be the one really gettin in troule
