The Art of Dramatic Writing: Its Basis in the Creative Interpretation of Human Motives
The Art of Dramatic Writing: Its Basis in the Creative Interpretation of Human Motives3.71 7 5 Author: Lajos Egri Narrator: Troy W. Hudson
Examining a play from the inside out, Egri starts with the heart of any drama: its characters. All good dramatic writing hinges on people and their relationships, which serve to move the story forward and give it life, as well as an understanding of human motives– why people act the way that they do.
Using examples from everything from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, Egri shows how it is essential for the author to have a basic premise– a thesis, demonstrated in terms of human behavior– and to develop the dramatic conflict on the basis of that behavior.
Using Egri's ABCs of premise, character, and conflict, The Art of Dramatic Writing is a direct, jargon-free approach to the problem of achieving truth in writing.
