- How are the events resolved? What is the denouement (unraveling of the plot)?
- Choose a character and quote some of her/his more revealing dialogue.
- What does the reader learn through these words?
- 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.
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.
