Storyboard Text

  • Setting
  • Exposition
  • "Now there were two possessions of the James Gillingham Young's in which they both took mighty pride... James' gold watch... Della's hair." (Henry 100)
  • Rising Action
  • Will you buy my hair? (Henry 100)
  • Very well... I will give $20 only.
  • An ugly, poor flat in the early 1900's, taken place on Christmas Eve. "But whenever Mr. James Dillingham Youngcame home and reached his flat, being greatly hugged by Della." (Henry 100)
  • Climax
  • If Jim doesn't kill me... before he takes a second look at me he'll say I look like a Coney Island chorus girl..." (Henry 101)
  • Both prize possessions of James and Della are Della's long, beautiful hair and James' golden watch.
  • Falling Action
  • Della decides to cut off her hair for $20, to buy James a gift. "Oh, and the next two hair tripped on rosy wings." (Henry 101)
  • Resolution
  • Putting her hair up in tiny, close-lying curls a top of her head, hoping Jim wouldn't notice her hair is cut short. She then thinks he won't love her anymore.
  • When jim tells Della that he "still loves his girl" but they then realize the situations irony. "I don't think there's anything less that could make me like my girl less." (Henry 102)
  • In the end, Jim bought Della combs, which she can no longer use, and Della bought Jima chain for his watch. But now both can use neither because they got rid of their greatest possessions. This showed what they sacrificed for their love for one another and to be happy.
  • "But in the last word to the wise of these days, let it be said that of all who gives gifts, these two were the wisest." (Henry 103)
