what is the difference between a plot and a summary?


Plot:

Summary:
http://www.answers.com/summary

They are similar in some ways, but the plot of a story, book, or play is like a blueprint -- it contains all the necessary elements to make the story work.

A summary is simply a condensed retelling of the story.
