    The Wretched Stone

    The complicating incident of The Wretched Stone is when the captain brings the strange stone onboard the ship, which was a bad mistake. Later on, the captain tries to see what his crew is up to with the stone, but when he gets in, he sees the creepy ape crew, which are the results of them staring at the stone for too long, which makes him realize the mistake. The crew doesn’t help the captain with the ship after that, and a storm comes. After that incident, he starts playing the violin and reads to his crew, making them turn back to normal eventually. At the end of the story, the crew is cured, a rescue ship arrives, and the captain burns down his own ship with the stone still inside the ship. The protagonist in this story is the captain. But, the antagonist in this story is the captain as well, due to making the mistake of bringing the stone on the ship. The conflict in the story is how the crew was turned into apes, and they didn’t help the captain out. The author has created some foreshadowing by mentioning some of the crew had a large appetites for bananas, meaning they’re still affected by the stone, but on entirely.

    The wretched stone
    I think the complicating incident is when they found the stone.
    And the crisis when the crew members turned into apes.
    And the climax is when they went to the island and the boat was banded. Denouement when they went to the island. I think the protagonist is the caption the antagonist is apes and caption the conflict is when that got turned into apes the suspense is when that banned the boat and set it on fire and foe the foreshadowing is when they stared into the stone and you probably now something is going to happen.

    Complicating incident: He brings the rock onto the ship. Crisis: Then the crew turns into monkeys. Climax :Next the crew turns back to normal. Denouement : Lastly the crew stays as normal but still like bananas. The protagonist: is the person who wrote the book. The antagonist: is the rock. The conflict :is the crew turns into apes. Yes there is foreshadowing because the crew was getting around faster on the ropes.

    The complicating incident of the Wretched Stone is when the crew found the shiny stone on the small lifeless island.
    The crisis is when the storm comes and partially destroys the ship and the Crew turn into monkeys.
    The climax is when the captain reintroduces the monkeys to humanlike activities, and the monkeys turn back into humans.
    The denouement is when the people are saved and end up in a small Central American town and some people still act like monkeys. The protagonist of the story is the crew member telling the story. The antagonist is the large, shiny stone.
    The conflict of the story is when the crew members find the large stone. Then the people turn into monkeys.
    The foreshadowing of this story is when it describes the people swinging on the ropes, walk all clumsy, and the people rarely speak showing early signs of them turning into apes.

    The wretched stone

    The protagonist is the captain. The antagonist is the sailors. The conflict in the story is when the apes opened the door. Which were a sailor and the foreshadowing is when the captain was confused about the rock when it changed all the sailors into apes and finally the author creates suspense by really good imagination and also using creative writing.

    I think the protagonist is the crew and the captain and antagonist is the stone that captain found.
    I think the conflict is the crew turned into apes by the stone that the captain brought on the ship.
    I think the author creates suspense by when the captain was reading to the crew and playing some music.
    I saw foreshadowing when the stone was glowing I knew that something was going to happen.

    Complicating incident: stone.

    Crisis: Crew turned to apes.

    Climax: Deck was deserted.

    Denouement: Crew turned back to humans.

    The Wretched Stone

    The Complicating incident was that that there was no animals in the forest. The Crisis was some of the crew went over board. The Climax is the crew turned to apes. The Denouement was they have a agreement not to talk about strang things. The Protagonist is captain of the ship. The Antagonist is the apes were the crew. The conflict of the story is the captain and the apes on the ship. The author creates suspense by with no animals, the apes, and the crew not talking. There is foreshadowing when they saw no animals and the crew weren’t talking.

    The Wretched Stone

    I thought the protagonist was the captain and the antagonist is the rock the captain found.
    I think the conflict in the story is finding the rock and letting the rock aboard the ship.

    The author created suspense by saying “They don’t speak; they swing along the rigging of the boat, and the walked the boat clumsy like.”

    There is foreshadowing in this book. I think that because the author explained how they were kind of turning into some kind of animal or creature.

    The complicating incident is finding the island because if they didn’t nothing would’ve went the way the book went.

    The crisis is finding the rock because they would’ve never got that fever they had and never would’ve changed into apes.

    The climax is when the whole crew turned into apes.

    The denouement was when they changed back to real people.

    The wretched stone

    The crew members were acting strange and being clumsy and they rarely speak. The crew members turned into monkeys. The captain was trying to com the monkeys down by reading the story and trying to make things back to normal. The crew members aren’t monkeys anymore. The captain was reporting bad weather and a storm coming there way. They are low in water and supplies and food. Because the captain yelled out land-ho before sunset was reported a island. The island is because is going to help get things to normal like the captain is.

    The wretched stone

    The Complicating incident of the wretched stone is when the stone is brought aboard the ship in the forward hold. The crisis is the crew was turned into apes and ship damaged. The Climax is the glow from the stone started to dim and after that, the captain started reading to them. The ones who knew how to read cure faster then others. The Denouement is that they got saved from an other ship and then captain light a fire inside their ship and let it sink to the ground. Then after they got to safety some of the crew was addicted to bananas. The protagonist is the captain. The antagonist is the stone’s curse. The conflict in the story is a couple day after staring at the stone. The foreshadowing is when captain wakes to see the deck empty and the crew rarely talks, swings on the ropes faster.

    The Wretched Stone

    I think the complicating incident that started all of the confusion was when the Captain and some of his crew members brought the rock from the uncharted island aboard the Rita Anne. I think that because when they brought the rock on board, all of the problems started happening. The crisis is when the crew turned into apes and they would spend all their days sitting around the rock and gazing into the light that the rock made instead of helping the Captain. I believe that the climax of The Wretched Stone is when the crew turned into apes and the crew would not assist the Captain when the terrible storm hit the ship. Finally, the denouement is when the Captain cured the crew by playing music on the violin and reading books. In the text it said that the crew members who knew how to read cured the fastest. I think that the Protagonist, the good person in the text, is the Captain because he was the one who tried his hardest to cure the crew. I think the Antagonist, the bad person in the text, is the stone. I believe that because the rock was the thing that caused all the crew members to get hypnotized, and the stone was the thing that made the ship get struck by lightning. The conflict in the story is when it was up to the Captain to save the crew members from the powers of the wretched stone because the crew would not help at all with the duties that had to be done on the ship. Some examples of ways the author created suspense was when it said that a storm hit the ship and that the Captain was the only one who would do anything about it. Another example was when the author said that it was not a human who opened the door. Last but not least, some examples of foreshadowing were when the author stated that the crew was walking funny and that they could swing on the ropes better then ever. Finally, the last example of foreshadowing that was used in this text was when the author said that the crew had a unusual appetite for bananas.
