“Dog of Pompeii” test tomorrow!

Plot diagram — Exposition: “Tito and his dog Bimbo lived (if you could call it living) under the wall where it joined the inner gate. They really didn’t live there; they just slept there. They lived anywhere. Pompeii was one of the gayest of the old Latin towns…”

Rising Action: “No one knew what caused the earthquakes. Records showed that they had happened in the neighborhood since the beginning of time. …The next morning there were two of the beloved raisin and sugar cakes for his breakfast. Bimbo was unusually active and thumped his bit of a tail until Tito was afraid he would wear it out. The boy could not imagine whether Bimbo was urging him to some sort of game or was trying to tell him something.”

Climax:”He woke early. Or, rather, he was pulled awake. Bimbo was doing the pulling. The dog had dragged Tito to his feet and was urging the boy along. Somewhere. Where, Tito did not know. His feet stumbled uncertainly; he was half asleep. For a while he noticed nothing except the fact that it was hard to breathe. The air was hot. And heavy. So heavy that he could taste it. The air, it seemed, had turned to powder, a warm powder that stung his nostrils and burned his sightless eyes.”

Falling Action: “Sick with hunger, half dead with fear and sulfur fumes, Tito pounded on, pursued by Bimbo. How long he never knew. He staggered through the marine gate and felt soft sand under him. Then, Tito fainted.”

Resolution: “They tucked him in among them. The oarlocks creaked; the oars splashed; the boat rode over toppling waves. Tito was safe. But he wept continually. “Bimbo!” he wailed. “Bimbo! Bimbo!” He could not be comforted. …Eighteen hundred years passed.”
