Power of myth,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Key: How to Write Damn Good Fiction Using the Power of Myth (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In countless interviews George Lucas told us how he used the power of myth to create his masterpiece, "Starwars." So why was "Phantom Menace" no more satisfying than a spectacular videogame? After you read "The Key," you'll know the answer. Mythic storytelling requires more than throwing archetypes and classic plot elements onto the page. Mr. Frey shows us how to tap into the deepest human emotions using a structure that has been with us since before the written word. He shows us how to look at our own writing and decide where the various aspects of myth might make our story stronger. Walking us through the development of a myth-based novel, Mr. Frey "auditions" characters, steps, and complications. Some work and are incorportated into his story, some don't work and are tossed. This is an extension of techniques he outlined in his two previous "how to" books, but here the process is even more accessable. "The Key" is not the first book on fiction and the hero's journey, but it's the best I've read. In "The Key" we learn to use the hero's journey as a tool, not a formula. I've already ordered copies of "The Key" for my writer friends, my teenagers, and their creative writing teachers. Perhaps if Mr. Lucas had read "The Key" we would have seen him at the Academy Awards this year.
