Charlie is a 37 year old man that does not know much. He gets tested by 2 doctors and they run tests on him.He wants to get smart, a quote is, "I want to get smart". (762)
Charlie soon realized that his IQ is really low so he wanted to get smarter. He decided to get a test on him that would make him smart. He was above average smart. He could actually do his tests without failing. A quote for this is that, "I told them because all my life I wanted to be smart and not dumb".(674)
I think the climax is when algernon bites Charlie because this shows that algernon is changing and soon Charlie will be too. Here is a quote to support my answer, " It happened today. Algernon bite me. I visited the lab to see him as I do occasionally, and when I took him out of his cage, he snapped at my hand".(702)
For the falling action Charlie is wondering if algernon is changing because he had some weird behavior when algernon bite Charlie. Here is a quote to support my answer. "Burt, who is in charge of the experimental animals, tells me that algernon is changing".(703) He is less cooperative , he refuses to run the maze anymore, general motivation has decreased and he has not been eating".(703)
I think the resolution and denouement is that when Charlie was not aloud to go to the lab anymore, Charlie thinks they are up to something so he starts his own lab to go ahead with research. Here is a quote to support my answer. "I have been given a lab of my own and permission to go ahead with research".(703) This explains that he wants to get research and set up his own lab. Another quote is, "Most of my writing time is spent on the notes which I keep in a separate folder".(703) This explains that Charlie already has some research and he is doing very good setting up his new lab.
One theme is that when Charlie had friends. He liked his friends a lot and this them represents friendship. Charlie thought they had a funny joke called the "Charlie Gordon" (686) but then Charlie found out that it was not funny. This brings me to another them when Charlie was with his friends at a party and his friends embarrassed him and they were like, "Look at him his face is red, Charlie is blushing".(686) This shows that Charlie now feels bad for what he did and another quote Charlie said was that, "Now I know what it feels like to pull a Charlie Gordon".(686) Then soon after they all forgave each other and became friends again. This quote I showed shows forgiveness.
