Dramaturgy in The Wizard’s Heir

Posted on Posted in Blog, News

Skrivarpodden (The Writing Pod) interviewed me about dramaturgy and how I use it when I write. See the short interview below, only in Swedish.

What I talk about is how I use the classic dramaturgy with a beginning, middle and end.. The beginning consists of the introduction of characters and plot. The middle deepens the plot until we reach the point of no return. After that the end de-escalate the plot. This is the classic curve within the study of dramaturgy and is frequently used in books, movies and theatre. I chose this dramaturgy to give my novel Trollkarlens arvinge (The Wizard’s Heir) a smooth and delightful reading experience. / Ida
