How are the events resolved? What is the denouement (unraveling of the plot)?
  1. How are the events resolved?  What is the denouement (unraveling of the plot)?
  1. Choose a character and quote some of her/his more revealing dialogue.
  2. What does the reader learn through these words?
  3. How is the dialogue more or less revealing than narrative would be?

The unraveling of the plot is in the discovery of the dead canary, but also, and equally important, is the concurrence of the women to not reveal this discovery in order to protect Mrs. Wright.  Without any concrete evidence, Minnie Wright has the chance to have her case thrown out.

The climax of the play is Mrs. Hale finding of the bird's body in the box. The discussion of the bird and what might have happened to it is a cover for the real conversation, and a way to talk about what happened to Minnie without really talking about it.

I agree with Post 2, the climax and the point in which the reader is most interested is when the character (Mrs. Hale) finds the bird's body in the box. The denouement, or the resolution was the discussion and the conversation between characters after this discovery.
