Narration

Tex is characterized by simple first person narration; in other words, the story is told from Tex's perspective. There are no superfluous tricks or scenes. Everything in the narration relates to the plot, and the reader knows only what Tex knows.

Within the conventions of fiction, the action— both emotional and actual—gradually rises until it reaches a crisis point. This is known as the climax.

The climax of Tex occurs in the school office, when Tex hears how close he came to being expelled and witnesses Mason fighting with Pop.
