I’m on section 4.6 now – what is plot? The writers of this course seem to be saying that character is key to plot. But I’m not sure I’m totally convinced by this. People can be thrown into situations that are not of their choice, that they never could have expected. How they deal with those situations, how they react to what happens to them, will depend very much on characterisation. But does plot also depend on characterisation? What about archetypes, and archetypal situations? I’m confused.
