Narrative is one of the ways in which we speak

July 13, 2015

“Narrative is one of the ways in which we speak, one of the large categories in which we think. Plot is its thread of design and its active shaping force, the product of our refusal to allow temporality to be meaningless, our stubborn insistence on making meaning in the world and in our lives.” 
~ p.323 Peter Brooks Reading for the plot: design and intention in narrative. Alfred A Knopf: New York. 1984
