After having studied and been teaching drama for many years, digging through both old and new theories on how to tell a story, I find that the most potent, timeless and usefull version on the theme, is Aristotles update on Plato. Reading about genres of his time is like reading a modern pop-magazine. Taking part of the discission between young and old of that time is a direct comment on todays debate on culture and quality. And the heart of the subject according to Aristotle is the mimetic approach. The first one we know of writing it, still says it best! May the consept of mimesis never die!
