Writing Subtext: What Lies Beneath 2nd Edition

by: Dr. Linda Seger

READ SAMPLE

“What lurks in the shadows, just below waking consciousness?”
Subtext can be the most important element in text and in a performance. It’s an unseen force that speaks directly to the reader’s unconscious, deepening meaning and understanding. Great subtext reveals more than simple dialogue and action and is at the heart of the best books and films. It is what glues us to the screen.
This book goes far beyond dialogue, action, gestures, genre, and images. Written by one of the foremost script consultants in the world and the most prolific writer on screenwriting, this new edition adds new examples with chapters on analogy and love and provides deeper explanations of how subtext works beneath the text. This edition has been expanded to be relevant to all fiction writers.
