Aristotle’s Six Elements of Théâtre These elements of play include “plot, character, theme, language, rhythm, and spectacle” (“Aristotle” , 2018). Plot describes the incidents which occur and how the characters solve problems. Character are agents of the plot as they ensure the play runs successfully. Theme shows the message the author is trying to send to the audience. Language is defined by the dialogue and the turn of events in the play. Rhythm creates a mood in the play such as having music playing in the background. Finally, spectacle defines what the audience sees on stage. Three Kinds of Plots There are various types of plots in a play which are rags to riches, tragedy, comedy, etc. Rags to riches plot describes how a poor protagonist becomes wealthy or gains back what he/she had lost. Tragedy plot showcases how the protagonist is a hero, but he/she has a flaw which affects him/her greatly leading to demise. Comedy plot is defined by the humorous characters in the play, and in most cases the plot makes the audience have a good mood. Character Who I Resemble The best character who resembles me is Nora Helmer. She goes to great lengths to ensure the wellness of a family by committing fraud to get a loan. Moreover, she lets people define who she is thus making her hide her true personality. In this case, I believe I resemble her because I am willing to anything to safeguard the safety of my family and I sometimes let people persuade my judgment. Reference

    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.
