Throughout the history of motion pictures, films have been  primarily used to tell a story of some fashion. The chief concern of this class is the “theatrical narrative film,”  also known as the fiction film or the dramatic film. To understand appreciate this type of cinema, its individual  disciplines, and the art of the filmmaker, one first must have a  basic comprehension of dramatic storytelling.

The earliest theories about dramatic storytelling were  formulated by Aristotle, in  The Poetics , about epic poetry  and classical tragedy . Aristotle broke down drama into the following  components: plot, character, thought, diction, melody,  and spectacle.

According to Aristotelian principles, a good plot must  have a clear beginning, middle, and end, forming a  unified whole without loose ends.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
