Elements of Fiction

In this master class, Adam Andrews works through the five elements of fiction (Setting, Character, Conflict, Plot, and Theme), demonstrating how each element works together with the others to support an artistic whole and enhance the author’s theme. He expands on ideas presented in Teaching the Classics and uses the Socratic questions found there to highlight each element using textual examples from works across the tradition. Episodes do not need to be watched in chronological order. New episodes are released approximately every two weeks.
