Objective: The exposition is an important literary technique and element of plot which essentially begins the story by introducing information into the story, or really, introducing the reader to the story. When used correctly, it is the most effective way of engaging the reader as well as providing crucial information on background, setting, characters, etc. In the case of Flashman and the Redskins, there is both an introduction and an exposition. The introduction gives the reader a brief albeit detailed, explanation on what has been happening to Flashman up to the point where the first part, The Forty-Niner, begins. The exposition then provides a more real time and detailed account of Flashman's place and predicament(s) in Part 1. Today's lesson will focus on introduction and exposition and how it applies to Flashman and the Redskins.
