What would be some of the benefits of using a specific dramatic structure such as Freytag's pyramid? What would be some of the drawbacks of using a specific dramatic structure such as Freytag's pyramid?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Freytag's Pyramid is a diagram of dramatic structure, one which shows complication and emotional tension rising like one side of a pyramid toward its apex, which represents the climax of action. Once the climax is over, the descending side of the pyramid depicts the decrease in tension and complication as the drama reaches its conclusion and denouement.
Freytag designed the chart for discussing tragedy, but it can be applied to many kinds of fiction.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
