  • "Some time ago there was a rich old codger" named John with his young wife Alison, and "who took a lodger," Nicholas the Gallant.
  • Exposition
  • Nicholas had a crush on Alison but she resented him.
  • "I'll die of secret love".
  • "No, I won't kiss you!"
  • Although she resented him at first, she decided she would rather love him, a young man, over her older husband.
  • Rising Action
  • There was another young man named Absalon. He was very very smitten with Alison. Absalon continuously tried to win her over.
  • "Now dearest lady, if they pleasure be / In thoughts of love, think tenderly of me!"
  • Rising Action
  • Nicholas and Alison "agreed at last in what was to be done" so that they could be together. Nicholas told John to prepare a flood as great as the one Noah of the Ark experienced.
  • "I have found out by my astrology"
  • Climax
  • Absalon goes to Alison when she is with Nicholas so Nicholas plays a nasty trick on him.
  • Falling Action
  • "I'll pay you back for it!"

  • OWWWW!!!!
  • Whaaa?!?
  • Falling Action & Resolution
