The Story Neoaristotelian analysis

Based on Aristotles work Ars Poetica Outlines how stories are put

together Stories contain six elements: Action

Character Thought Diction Music Spectacle

Action what happens Starts with an exposition What you need to know to understand

what follows Establishes an equilibrium or status quo

The problem Something happens to upset the status quo Everything in the story is aimed at solving the problem

Crisis A point at which the protagonist thinks he/she knows enough about the problem to

solve it The solution is applied Its the wrong answer, creating a

Complication

An obstacle to solving the problem, either because the wrong solution made it worse, or something new is added Any story longer than 15 seconds has multiple crises and complications

Climax the ultimate crisis

The protagonist has finally learned enough about the problem through the crises and complications to solve the problem and applies that solution

Denouement A final part of the action that may or not be necessary. It shows that the problem

has been solved and there are no more problems were back at an equilibrium. Character

How the story is told Diction = the words used and how theyre said Music = what we hear, including music and sound effects Spectacle = what we see, including

setting, lighting, costumes, make-up, relationships, angles, etc. Why is this important?

Humans arent really homo sapiens (wise man) but pan narrans (the story telling chimp)
