S18E5 – Pearls from the Masters: Aristotle

While Aristotle is more well-known for his philosophical ideas, he also has many memorable and applicable quotes to writing today. Storytelling in Greece during Aristotle’s time was largely done through theater. Modern patterns for tragedies, dramas, and comedies can all trace their roots to Greek theater. Aristotle helped define what makes a good play, from the plot to the characters.

Leigh and Ley discuss the advice and how it can still be useful in the modern world in this episode.
