  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • O Oysters, come and walk with us!
  • Climax
  • Setting: On or near the beach, at night Characters, The Walrus, The Carpenter, and the Oysters
  • Conflict
  • The Walrus and the Carpenter invite the oysters to come on a walk. The oldest oyster did not come along on the walk. Younger oysters went up, and were ready to go. They walked a long way, and the oysters were tired. The Walrus and the Carpenter started talking about eating.
  • Falling Action
  • "Now if your'e ready, Oysters dear, we can begin to feed!" "But not on us!" the Oysters cried.
  • Resolution
  • At this point in the story we can tell that the Walrus and the Carpenter tricked the Oysters, and plan on making a meal out of them. The poem says, "A loaf of bread," the Walrus said, "Is what we chiefly need: Pepper and vinegar besides."
  • "But not on us!" the Oysters cried, Turning a little blue." "Cut us another slice: I wish you were not quite so deaf-- I've had to ask you twice!" "With sobs and tears he sorted out Those of the largest size."
  • "O Oysters," said the Carpenter, "You've had a pleasant run! Shall we be trotting home again?' But answer came there none-- And this was scarcely odd, because They'd eaten every one.
