The protagonists are Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Robert Muldoon because the three of them were the most important parts in getting the generator back running and keeping the rest of the living people safe. The antagonists are John Hammond and Dennis Nedry. John Hammond is an antagonist because he let the park run carelessly. He paid no attention to the details that took many lives. Dennis Nedry is an antagonist because he shut the power down and caused many dinosaurs to escape, which caused many other problems throughout the park.
Hammond would have under exaggerated the problems in the park and would have made the problems other people’s faults. He would have made the idea of the park seem less dangerous than it really was and shared worse thoughts about employees like Nedry.
Michael Crichton named the novel Jurassic Park because a lot of the animals in the story were from the era and because it sounds more appealing to the readers than the eras some other dinosaurs were in.
In the Jurassic era Pangea split apart and spread out, so that foreshadows the raptors getting out and spreading off the island. The title also foreshadows that some of the creatures are from the Jurassic era and the animals Grant study are from this era too.
Imagery draws the reader’s attention into a sensory experience. It provides readers with mental snapshots and keeps them wondering what will happen next. It is a way of describing something symbolically.
When Sattler notices the poisonous ferns it’s a sign of danger and ignorance, ‘whoever had decided to place this particular fern at poolside obviously didn’t know that the spores of veriformans contained a deadly beta-carboline alkaloid. Even touching the attractive green fronds can make you sick”. The park designers weren’t just ignorant about the deadly poolside plants, but about the huge, dangerous, venomous, smart, and deadly creatures living in the park too. No one knew that the Dilophosaurs spit poison and then attacked their prey until Dennis Nedry was found dead. In this novel, poison signifies dangerous ignorance.
