    Dramatic Structure. Since Script Frenzy is rapidly approaching, I've been thinking about dramatic structure. These notes aren't authoritative or particularly well researched, but they have gotten me to a starting point. Jump to my conclusions about how to write a screenplay.   What are the key and inciting events? In the words of Syd Field in his legendary book Screenplay, “the inciting incident sets the story in motion [while] the key incident [is] what the story is about, and draws the main character into the story line.”If we were to envision our story as a row of dominos, the inciting event would be the first domino.

Dramatic structure is an idea, originating in Aristotle’s Poetics, that effective stories can be broken down into elements, usually including exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution, and that when writers are constructing a story they should include these five elements.

Form and content. Aristotle's work on aesthetics consists of the Poetics, Politics (Bk VIII) and Rhetoric. The Poetics is specifically concerned with some point, Aristotle's original work was divided in two, each "book" written on a separate roll of papyrus.

Only the first part – that which focuses on tragedy and epic (as a quasi-dramatic art, given its definition in Ch Dramatic structure is the structure of a dramatic work such as a play or scholars have analyzed dramatic structure, beginning with Aristotle in his Poetics (c.

BCE). This article looks at Aristotle's analysis of the Greek tragedy and on Gustav Freytag's analysis of ancient Greek and Shakespearean drama. Northrup Frye also offers a dramatic structure for the analysis of.

The five act structure expands the classical divisions and can be overlaid on a traditional plot diagram, as it follows the same five parts. Shakespearean plays especially are known for following this structure. In the illustration above, the narrative arc of the Plot Diagram is between the Five Act Structure (top) and Aristotle’s divisions.

As one moves up the Dramatica structure, looking from Character to Theme to Plot, the structural components (the Elements, Variations, and Types) take on a decreasing significance to the finished work compared to the storytelling aspects involved.

Objective Characters are very easy to define solely in terms of their Elemental dramatic functions. The dramatic structure is well developed with full and accurate descriptions. The plot diagram is accurate and logical; descriptions may be brief. The dramatic structure is basic, has several errors, and lacks detail.

The dramatic structure is inaccurate, and is difficult to follow. Meaning Ideas, information and use of detail • strong point. When I was writing my novel The Bishop, I began with the goal of letting the entire story span only 52 hours.

I thought that by packing everything into a tight time frame I would really make the story suspenseful. As I worked on the book, however, I realized that there was so much that needed to happen to build to the climax that if I kept to my hour time frame, events.

Let’s take each element in turn and look at the structure that would be required if that were to be the dominant element in your story.

Barry, in his book Dramatic Structure, is ambivalent about act division, and believes the division of acts to be an afterthought, something that is either “purely conventional or organic and, in either case, its dictated divisions may or may not be physically marked for an audience at the playhouse” (Barry 86).
