5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent book that you can return to again and again., 2 Aug 2007
Ditto for the first reviewer. I have a large collection of screenwriting books and have taken several screenwiting courses - but I just wish I'd come across this little gem years ago. One can clearly see where a lot of "new" screenwriting books obtain their underlying theory - directly from Aristotle. The book is a wonderful read; extremely understandable and well written. If you are interested in improving your own screenwriting skills, then I would recommend this book wholeheartedly. The author, Michael Tierno, summarises Aristotle's arguments and theory in an exemplary manner - 5 stars.
