A Separate Peace

By: John Knowles


The Basic Plot of a Separate Peace is the rise and fall of two best friends while they attend an all boys high school during the events of World War 2.


The Climax of A Separate Peace is when Gene decides to joult the tree branch Finny was standing on causing him to fall.


The resolution is when Finny is on his death bed and forgives Gene for making him fall and Gene has a self awakening while Finny dies.

Favorite Part

My favorite part of A Separate Peace is when Gene and Finny are climbing the tree and Gene jolts the branch because it was when the story started getting interesting.


The theme of a separate peace is friendship.
