Example text

In a novel, we expect to find a narrator, a voice that speaks directly to us. Unlike the more omniscient narration used by nineteenth-century writers such as George Eliot, most twentieth-century literary fiction implicates this voice in the story. Thus, we have degrees of unreliable, first-person narrators or third-person narrators inflected with the voice and emotional charge of characters within the story. We talk about this in Chapter 21. In fact, this overt narrative shaping is one of the reasons why novels can frequently turn on events that have less obvious import than do those in films.

At first, you may find that there is little correspondence between the breakdowns, but as you work with the story, you should find that they eventually align. When they are aligned, you will find that a three-sentence summary of the action of the story also summarizes character development and change. Relationship of the First Act to the Third Act When a story goes bad in the third act, usually the problem can be traced to the first act. Restorative three-act stories are not about surprises; rather, they are about the playing out of events that have already been set up.

In some restorative three-act stories, the third act represents a return to innocence, as in Bud’s return to his family at the end of Wall Street. However, this shedding of all that happens to him during the course of the film may seem unsatisfactory. To return to his family, Bud rejects the greed and ambition that drove his actions for most of the film. The residue of this ambition is never accounted for. How did he come to terms with it? Where did it all go? In other restorative three-act stories, the third act represents a compromise between the extremes of the first two acts, and we feel that the character’s experiences are more satisfactorily accounted for.
