Inhaltsangabe

Learn the basic techniques every successful playwright knows

Among the many "how-to" playwriting books that have appeared over the years, there have been few that attempt to analyze the mysteries of play construction. Lajos Egri's classic, The Art of Dramatic Writing, does just that, with instruction that can be applied equally well to a short story, novel, or screenplay.

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.

School within itself

I love the content of the book, it is a school within itself. Buy the book, skip the audiobook. But the narrator is by far the worst I've ever come across. There is a nasal intonation on every second syllabus and every other word is emphasized like the point of the sentence rests on the emphasis. It is very, very disorienting.

Highly recommended

Magnificent and clear, a must read for any writer. The narrator was easy to listen to. The chapters tend to be a little long, but I was never bored. Very informative and to the point, giving many examples.

Nice for beginners, few gems for experienced

This book is good if you've never approached writing before and it also holds a few gems for experienced writers. But I would rather recommend Blake Snyder's "Save the cat"
