    • Abstract:
      A literary plot reflects the series of events that constitute the action of a narrative. This structure of interrelated actions is consciously arranged by the author to construct a story. The author stylistically shapes plot to achieve emotional responses from the reader; otherwise, it is just series of episodes with no cohesion. The plot is a key element of numerous forms of literature, including novels and short fiction, graphic novels, and narrative poems, and plays a crucial role in theater, film, and television.
