Kingdom Of Marchen

Major Conflict

For my book I think the conflict is person vs.society
In the beginning, Jack was bullied in his village. At one point in the story, Jack is given the chance to wield the sword of his dreams. When the goblin who is selling it asks him what he wants most, the story says,"And without hesitation,without even realizing he was saying it, Jack said, I want to be respected,"(Gidwitz, 176).

This shows that society does not respect him.

Rising Action

  1. Jack receives a magical bean.
  2. Jack and Jill swear on their lives to a mysterious old woman to retrieve a lost magical looking glass.
  3. The bean grows into a beanstalk and Jack and Jill climb it to the sky to join a band of giants.
  4. Jack and Jill flee the band after the giants tried to kill Jack.
  5. After falling from the sky, Jack and Jill travel to the goblin kingdom, along the way three ravens came to tell them, "You, dear children, are con-fused. What you want, what you think, what you believe, all get mixed up with what other people want for you, or think or think you should want, or believe about you. Do you see?,"(Gidwitz, 153).
  6. Jack and Jill find the glass and take it to the mysterious woman.

Climax

Jack and Jill found the looking glass, and found out it's not magic.

Falling Action

When Jack and Jill come back home, Jack still gets bullied and rejected, and Jill's mother does not pay any attention to Jill.

Resolution

Jack and Jill had finally had enough and go to live in the woods. Soon all the children wanted to play with them, and Jill's mother finds her and tells Jill "my beautiful, wise girl"(Gidwitz,310).Showing to Jill that her mother does care about her.
