CONFLICT

Antagonist

The conflict of this story definitely occurs within two realms: man versus man, and man versus the supernatural. Thatís not to say, though, that there are two antagonists. The only real antagonist in the story is Dark, proprietor of Cooger and Darkís Combined Shadow Shows and cross-continental Pandemonium Theater Company. The carnival itself, though, has such supernatural powers, it would be impossible not to classify it as paranormal.


Protagonist

The major stable protagonist of the story is Will Halloway. Occasionally Jim Nightshade fits into this role, and eventually Charles does too, but Will is the only possible choice as a constant protagonist.

Climax

The conflict comes to a head in the climactic final battle that occurs over the last part of the book. The climax, though, doesnít actually occur until Jim is finally resuscitated by Charles and Will.

Outcome

The conflict has several outcomes: the carnival is destroyed, Will and Jim remain friends, and Charles makes peace with who he truly is.
