Conceptive Technique: Plot and Situation by Robert Saunders Dowst: Definition of Plot--Character and Plot--Dramatic Value of Plot--Complication--Interest--Plot as Problem--Three Basic Themes--Conflict Between Man and Nature--Conflict Between Man and Man--Conflict Within the Same Man-- Arrangement of Elements of Plot--Climax--Major Situations-- Situation and Plot. The plot of a story is its heart and essence. This is obviously true in the case of the strict story of plot, and it is very curiously true in the case of the story of character or of atmosphere. For in the story which lays emphasis on personality, the evolution or degeneration of the particular trait which has been selected for presentation is the real story-element of the fiction. The fact is the root of the necessity that the action develop in concert with the trait of character, giving it opportunity for expression. And in the story which lays emphasis on atmosphere, the climactic progression of the particular atmosphere to the point of highest intensity is the real story-element, which is the root of the necessity that the action develop in strict keeping with the atmosphere, that the effect may not be spoiled.
