PostSubject: Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations   Sun Sep 15, 2013 11:59 am

Now, if this doesn't get those plot bunnies hopping about nothing will. Here are the 36 dramatic situations which are the essence of every story in the world. Shoehorn the boys in and you've got yourself a story! cowboy 1 

Georges Polti created a list of 'Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations' which categorizes every dramatic situation that might occur in a story or performance. Polti analyzed classical Greek texts, classical and contemporaneous French works and analyzed a handful of non-French authors. In his introduction, Polti claims to be continuing the work of Carlo Gozzi, who also identified 36 situations.
