POINT OF VIEW
Mark
Twain used a first-person point
of view for both narrators in "Luck".
An unnamed first-person narrator
introduces the situation of
confidential revelation.
The second narrator, the clergyman,
tells the actual details of the story
itself.
PLOT
Exposition.
This story opens at a
banquet where Arthur Scoresby is to
be honored.
Complication. The clergyman told
the narrator that Scoresby was a fool.
The narrator wonder whether the
clergyman was truthful or not.
PLOT
 Climax.
The Crimean War started. The
clergyman took part in the war to protect the
country. Scoresby became a captain but he
comited many blunders in the war. It was
caused worry to the clergyman. The colonel
died so Scoresby was next in the rank. A blunder
will bring them destruction and the clergyman
thought that they would be lose. But because of
their luck, the Russian fled from the battle
ground in confusion.
PLOT
 Falling
Action. They won the battle and
Scoresby became a hero. Scoresby mistakes his
right hand for his left and leads a charge in the
wrong direction, surprising a Russian force and
causes a retreat of the Russian army, thus
securing an Allied victory.
 Resolution. Scoresby had been a shining soldier
in all the wars for many years. His military life
was full of blunders but they brought him great
success. It was a proof that a man would get the
best if he was born lucky.
SECONDARY THEME
Superior
feeling can make
someone fool
Wrong decision in the right time
can bring success
CHARACTERS
The
narrator "I" is a static character.
He's a bit player anyway and always
introduces the action.
Scoresby is a develop character. He
develops with his education and luck.
By each detail of his education and
luck, his story changes.
CHARACTERS
The
clergyman is perhaps the most
dynamic character of all. Every time
Scoresby "learns" or has one of his
luck, the clergyman changes and
develops an opinion about Scoresby.
