Storyboard Text

  • "One dollar and eighty seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas."(99)
  • "She had been saving every penny she could for month, with this result."(100)
  • "Only $1.87 to buy a present for Jim. Her Jim"(100)
  • By what Della has said, this leads the reader to understand that there is conflict. The reader knows that $1.87 cannot buy much, definitely not a suitable present for someone on Christmas. This conflict is man v.s. nature.
  • This shows the reader how Della has struggled for so long just to get enough money to buy something over Christmas, yet she still couldn't manage to get enough. This also tells the reader how dissapointed she is in her turnout. The reader understands just how bad the conflict really is. Della is unsure about how to solve her conflict because she already did her best.
  • This shows the reason why only having $1.87 is so bad to Della. This shows how badly she wants to buy something for 'her Jim' but can't. Now the reader understands why Della struggled so hard to get the money, other than the reason being that Christmas was around the corner. Now the reader knows how important Jim is to Della. She will have to be wise and find some way to get the money she needs.
