Amid the hundreds of "how-to" books that have appeared in recent years, there have been very few which attempted to analyze the mysteries of play-construction. This book does that -- and its principles are so valid that they apply equally well to the short story, novel and screenplay. Lajos Egri examines a play from the inside out, starting with the heart of any drama: its characters. For it is people -- their private natures and their inter-relationships -- that move a story and give it life. All good dramatic writing depends upon an understanding of human motives. Why do people act as they do? What forces transform a coward into a hero, a hero into a coward? What is it that Romeo does early in Shakespeare's play that makes his later suicide seem inevitable? Why must Nora leave her husband at the end of A Doll's House? These are a few of the fascinating problems which Egri analyzes. He shows how it is essential for the author to have a basic premise -- a thesis, demonstrated in terms of human behavior -- and to develop his dramatic conflict on the basis of that behavior. Premise, character, conflict: this is Egri's ABC. His book is a direct, jargon-free approach to the problem of achieving truth in a literary creation.

An accessible, contemporary guide to the art of dramatic writing During the ten years that Stuart Spencer has taught playwriting, he has struggled to find an effective playwriting handbook for his courses. Although most of the currently popular handbooks have good ideas in them, they all suffer from the same problems: they're poorly organized; are composed mostly of quirky, idiosyncratic advice on how specific playwrights have gone about writing their own work; and are full of abstract theorizing on the nature of art. As a result, they fail to offer any concrete information on how to construct a well-written play or any useful guidelines and exercises. Moreover, few of these books are actually written by working playwrights. Out of frustration, Spencer wrote his own book. The result, The Playwright's Guidebook, is a clear, concise, and engaging handbook. Spencer addresses the important principles of structure, includes insightful writing exercises that build upon one another, explores the creative process, and troubleshoots recurrent problems that playwrights actually face.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Universitat Leipzig, 5 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die hier vorliegende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit Lajos Egris Werk The Art of Dramatic Writing" und seine Anwendung als Drehbuchtheorie. Obwohl es in dem 1946 erschienen Buch in erster Linie um Theaterstucke geht bieten Egris Thesen nach meiner Auffassung eine nicht zu unterschatzende Abhandlung uber Stoffentwicklung im Allgemeinen, die auch fur das Kino die gleiche Relevanz hat. Lajos Egri will mit seinem Buch nicht in erster Linie eine Anleitung geben, wie man am besten gute Drehbucher schreibt, sondern mochte durch seine Arbeit auch den Zuschauern und Laien" helfen, dramatische Strukturen besser verstehen zu lernen. Um die Besonderheiten seiner Konzepte besser verstandlich zu machen, vergleiche ich seine Thesen im dritten Kapitel dieser Arbeit mit anderen Drehbuchtheorien und werde anschliessend im letzen Teil untersuchen, inwiefern sich Egris Thesen auf die Analyse von Filmen anwenden lasst, und zwar am Beispiel des Billy Wilder-Klassikers Sunset Boulevard"

The Art of Writing Drama is an indispensable textbook for wherever writing for the stage is taught, but also serves as a foundational book for any student taking courses in performance media - radio, television and film. Coupling theory with practice, the book opens with a survey of the current methodologies of teaching playwriting and of textual analysis. The theories of Bakhtin, Foucault and Derrida are examined as are the agendas of play reviewers from the national press. In the second section of the book, a wealth of guidance with practical exercises on the skills of writing for the stage is provided. Throughout the text, Wandor draws on her extensive experience as both playwright and teacher of creative writing to provide a guide that is both a scholarly and an immensely practical guide to writing for the theatre.

Doran William Cannon's AUTHORSHIP: THE DYNAMIC PRINCIPLES OF CREATIVE WRITING is the first practical text to essay the philosophic tenets of dramatic writing since Lajos Egri's THE ART OF DRAMATIC WRITING was published in 1946. AUTHORSHIP supplants Egri's book as a usable guide for the creative writer because Cannon's unique theories address both the intuitive insights as well as the structural elements required for modern screenwriters, novelists & playwrights. Cannon starts with the "Inner Conflict" of the Main Character (Protagonist), not only as the wellspring from which all other elements of story & plot will evolve, but as the trigger device to create an "ecstatic rapport" with the audience or reader. The book includes THE CANNON PLANAGRAM, AN ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM FOR SCREENWRITERS, NOVELISTS, & PLAYWRIGHTS. QUOTES INCLUDE: "...any writer serious about any form of putting words to paper will rejoice that Doran Williams Cannon has written this book."--BARNABY CONRAD, Author/Director, Santa Barbara Writers Conference. "...AUTHORSHIP provides a series of solid stepping stones on that perilous journey of the creative process."--MICHAEL PHILLIPS, Film Producer, THE STING, TAXI-DRIVER, etc. "Cannon presents a structured format, yet shows you how to involve your own creative subconscious. Your story writes itself."--BARBARA GRIFFITHS, Ph.D., Psychologist/writer.

Playwriting Seminars is "a treasure-trove of information, philosophy, and inspiration" (Theatre Journal), "an absolutely essential guide to all aspects of playwriting and a valuable whitewater raft trip down the rapids of Hollywood screenwriting" (Magellan), and "a terrific learning environment for writers" (WebCrawler Select). It was also a recommended resource for playwrights at New Dramatists (NYC). The Handbook's initial concepts came from the author's work with Lucasfilm and the BBC. It was originally developed for playwrights and screenwriters, but has since been used by writers of fiction and nonfiction books. This new edition covers all aspects of writing full-length plays with an expanded treatment of screenwriting for Hollywood and independent film as well as diagrams of key elements of dramatic structure. Playwriting techniques are explained with many examples from classic and contemporary plays performed today by America's regional theatres as well as on Broadway and Off-Broadway. The 392 page Handbook explains the interconnections between characters and plot and the importance of subtext to character development in the contemporary theatre (what characters don't tell us matters as much as what they say in dialogue). Key exercises are included for developing "voice" as a writer and for creating the essential dual plot structure that supports intriguing characters in today's theatre. Many professionals in theatre and film are quoted on key parts of the art and craft of playwriting and screenwriting to help explain effective techniques. Special sections of the Handbook focus on getting inspiration and avoiding writer's block, editing first drafts, professional script formats for theatre and film (including software), how to launch new scripts, putting together submission packages for theatres and competitions, how to write an effective script synopsis and writer's bio, working with directors, actors and agents, how to survive audience "talkbacks" following readings and workshop productions, methods to adjust your playwriting skills for screenwriting and television work, and options for making a living at the craft of dramatic writing.

The idea of Into the Woods is not to supplant works by Aristotle, Lajos Egri, Robert McKee, David Mamet, or any other writers of guides for screenwriters and playwrights, but to pick up on their cues and take the reader on a historical, philosophical, scientific, and psychological journey to the heart of all storytelling. In this exciting and wholly original book, John Yorke not only shows that there is truly a unifying shape to narrative—one that echoes the great fairytale journey into the woods, and one, like any great art, that comes from deep within—he explains why, too. With examples ranging from The Godfather to True Detective, Mad Men to Macbeth, and fairy tales to Forbrydelsen (The Killing), Yorke utilizes Shakespearean five-act structure as a key to analyzing all storytelling in all narrative forms, from film and television to theatre and novel-writing—a big step from the usual three-act approach. Into the Woods: A Five-Act Journey Into Story is destined to sit alongside David Mamet’s Three Uses of the Knife, Robert McKee’s Story, Syd Field’s Screenplay, and Lajos Egri’s The Art of Dramatic Writing as one of the most original, useful, and inspiring books ever on dramatic writing.

Award-winning novelist Samuel R. Delany has written a book for creative writers to place alongside E. M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel and Lajos Egri’s Art of Dramatic Writing. Taking up specifics (When do flashbacks work, and when should you avoid them? How do you make characters both vivid and sympathetic?) and generalities (How are novels structured? How do writers establish serious literary reputations today?), Delany also examines the condition of the contemporary creative writer and how it differs from that of the writer in the years of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and the high Modernists. Like a private writing tutorial, About Writing treats each topic with clarity and insight. Here is an indispensable companion for serious writers everywhere.
