THE LEGENDARY TEACHER OF STORY . . .

Robert McKee's new book CHARACTER: The Art of Role and Cast Design for Page, Stage and Screen is an excellent companion volume to his hugely successful STORY: Substance, Structure, Style and the Principles of Screenwriting and DIALOGUE: The Art of Verbal Action for Page, Stage and Screen. Divided into four parts (In praise of Character, Character Creation, The Character Universe and Character Relationships) CHARACTER has a primary purpose of enriching the reader's insight into the nature of a fictional character and sharpens the creative techniques necessary to invent a complex cast of personalities, starting with the protagonist then adding the cast of supporting roles. McKee uses scenes from classic films and television programmes, Sex and the City, Casablanca, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad and Fawlty Towers, and the works of classical dramatists, Homer, Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett, to demonstrate how characters are constructed and developed for page, stage and screen. Robert McKee is an author, lecturer and story consultant whose popular writing workshops have brought him international fame. His book STORY, is the basis for his programme and it has defined how we regard the art of story creation. In STORY's companion volume, DIALOGUE, McKee offers the same in-depth analysis of how actors speak on the screen, on the stage and on the page. CHARACTER is a masterly work with a primary purpose of enriching the reader's insight into the nature of a fictional character and sharpening the creative techniques necessary to invent a complex cast of personalities, starting with the protagonist then adding the first, second and third tiers of supporting roles. CHARACTER is a brilliant addition to the genre and is essential reading for all aspiring writers.
