About this Item

RESOURCE FOR WRITERS OF BOOKS,PLAYS,MOVIES,ETC. 181 pages includes 48 pages of Alphabetical Index of the Plays, Novels, Etc., Classified in the Situations of the Work. GOETHE quote on first page: " Gozzi maintained that there can be but thirty-six tragic situations. Schiller took great pains to find more, but he was unable to find even so many as Gozzi." "It has long been known to the writing profession that there are no new plots.that all the conceivable situations have been used, and that all modern plots are but variations and adaptations of certain original situations. Georges Polti rendered a valuable service to authors when he discovered and classified the thirty-six dramatic situations, and his contribution has remained an outstanding literary achievement." DJ quote. Good quality. This well-used book is clean w/no writing and tight, but the cover page has cloth reinforcement tape. Worn DJ now covered with Mylar has pieces missing, but is not price clipped (original $2.00). The original copyright was in 1916 & 1917, renewed in 1921, 1931 & 1940. Says "Reprinted 1945."
