"Staff Pick" by ,

If you begged me to give you the title of one "how-to" book on the topic of screenwriting and wouldn't give up until I told you, then it would have to be this classic introduction to the craft. Often used as a textbook in screenwriting classes, Lajos Egri's The Art of Dramatic Writing gives writers the focus needed to attack a scene and create memorable character arcs. Another reason to recommend this book to young screenwriters is that it references many of the important dramas that may have been overlooked in high school, such as works by Ibsen, Moliere, and Synge.

"Review" by , "I found Lajos Egri's book enormously interesting — one of the best I have ever read."
"Synopsis" by , The author offers an approach to playwriting based on the natural law of dialectics.
