Literary fiction presents conflict– "a struggle between two opposing forces in a work of literature. In literature the conflict of a story is related to the protagonist or main character in some way. In most cases the conflict of a story results because something or someone is preventing the main
character (protagonist) from achieving his/her goal. When it comes down to it, without conflict, there is no plot."" With this definition in mind
