The funny thing about this story is that there's not really
much of a plot, so it doesn't easily fall into a classic plot analysis. As you
can probably tell, there is no primary conflict, no climax, and no
resolution—those terms kind of fall apart with Woolf. Still, conflict is suggested
throughout the story. For instance, the snail's struggle to get around the
leaf, or William's patient care taking of the old man. There are definitely no
resolutions here, though—Woolf leaves the larger story lines underlying these minor
conflicts to our imagination.
The fact that the story doesn't stick to a traditional plot
arc tells us that it's a pretty experimental piece of writing. Who would have
thought that a story in which a snail and some people move through a garden
could be so engaging? Ultimately, it might be better to think of "Kew
Gardens" not so much as a story in the traditional sense, but as a
vignette or snapshot of a particular moment in time.
