45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters - Paperback

£3.99

Product description

45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters. Paperback. Good used condition. Interior pages clear and readable - some minor underlining with open/pencil etc. Some minor marks to the cover and edges of the pages. Subject: Arts & Photography / History & Criticism.

Synopsis:
45 Master Characters will make your character and their stories more compelling, complex and original than ever before.

You'll explore the most common male and female archetypes - the mythic, cross-cultural models from which all characters originate - and learn how to use them as foundations for your own unique characters. Examples culled from literature, television and film illustrate just how memorable and effective these archetypes can be - from "Gladiators" and "Kings" like Rocky Balboa and Captain Ahab to "Amazons" and "Maidens" like Xena and Guinevere.

The mythic journey of heroes and heroines - the progression of events upon which each archetype's character arc develops -are also examined. Building such a "journey" into your character's story will enable you to stop worrying about what happens next and get on with telling your tale.
