Aristotle's Six Points


MY LIST OF ARISTOTLE’S 6 POINTS:


character—I fall in love with characters, and want to know what happens to them: gossipy

plot—I adore story, and am drawn in, usually forgetting to be critical of plot 'til afterwards

thought—character has to be believable; anachronisms loom large in my mind

diction—form follows function; if dialogue/language isn’t accurate, I get bored & bugged

music—by this I also think movement/choreography must support character’s actions

spectacle—alright in its place, but the rest had better be tight or I get annoyed
