The idea of Into the Woods is not to supplant works by Aristotle, Lajos Egri, Robert McKee, David Mamet, or any other writers of guides for screenwriters and playwrights, but to pick up on their cues and take the reader on a historical, philosophical, scientific, and psychological journey to the heart of all storytelling. In this exciting and wholly original book, John Yorke not only shows that there is truly a unifying shape to narrative--one that echoes the great fairytale journey into the woods, and one, like any great art, that comes from deep within--he explains why, too. With examples ranging from The Godfather to True Detective, Mad Men to Macbeth, and fairy tales to Forbrydelsen (The Killing), Yorke utilizes Shakespearean five-act structure as a key to analyzing all storytelling in all narrative forms, from film and television to theatre and novel-writing--a big step from the usual three-act approach. Into the Woods: A Five-Act Journey Into Story is destined to sit alongside David Mamet's Three Uses of the Knife, Robert McKee's Story, Syd Field's Screenplay, and Lajos Egri's The Art of Dramatic Writing as one of the most original, useful, and inspiring books ever on dramatic writing.
Boudica is both a groundbreaking new study and a surprisingly personal history that is a must-read for anyone interested in British or Roman history, feminism, or all things Celtic. Boudica has been mythologized as the woman who dared to take on the Romans to avenge her daughters, her tribe, and her enslaved country. Her immortality rests on the fact that she almost drove the Romans out of Britain, and her legend has become the reference point for any British woman in power, from Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher. As Boudica has become well known as an icon of female leadership and strength, the true story of her revolt against the Roman empire has only become more distant until now. Combining new research and recent archaeological discoveries, Vanessa Collingridge has written a major new biography on this shadowy and often misunderstood figure of ancient history. Boudica provides a detailed history of the Celtomania that has adopted Boudica as its earliest hero, and the nationalist and feminist causes that have also tried to claim her as their own. While tracking the origins and impact of the various versions of the Boudica legend, Collingridge unearths a historical woman who is far subtler but every bit as fascinating as the myths associated with her name.
Even after years on Orestes, Trey Maturin could not overcome an intense dislike of the Orestean social code. All the more so because, as sworn Medium for the great House of Halex, Trey was frequently a dutiful but reluctant partner to the code's often cruel injunctions. For 1,500 years, the Orestean code had held together a society carved out of a cold, material-poor moon of the planet Agamemnon, dividing its territories among five great Families. The code demanded the utmost loyalty to one's Family. To break it meant "death"--a legal declaration that banished the offender into a sharply defined social limbo. He or she became a ghost, unseen by the living. One could communicate with the dead only through a Medium, such as Trey; to do otherwise meant suffering social death oneself. There had been a time when the harsh code had served its purpose. On a world simmering with interfamilial rivalry, it had, with sanctioned Feuds, kept in check the ambitions and hatreds that might have completely destroyed Orestean civilization. But working for the House of Halex, Trey had long felt the tremors that would begin to undermine the code. For the Halex Family had been pioneering off-world trade, building their only marketable resources, fur and wool, into a rich source of income. Such commerce had brought new, exotic influences to insular Orestes... and excited the jealousy of their chief rival, the powerful, unscrupulous House of Brandr. The Brandr, who had been biding their time, reopened an ancient feud against the Halex. And suddenly Trey, who had sought to remain apart from the Orestean code, was thrust into the center of the deadly power struggle--becoming, by default, the custodian of the 15-year-old heir to the Halex patriarchy.... trapped by duty while the world, seething with economic and social unrest, moved toward war and devastation. Hunted by the Brandr, abandoned by the other Families, Trey's only allies were a crippled off-world spaceship captain and a ragtag band of ghosts. But those allies had their own ambitions and dreams to fulfill, and the bold, dangerous plan they conceived threatened to shatter what was left of Orestes.
