Using Lord of the Rings as a jumping off point, Alfie Vaughan gives an overview of three different narrative theories: Todorov’s Theory of Equilibrium, Propp’s Fairy Tale Characters, and Strauss’s Theory of Binary Opposition. From plot development to character tropes, each provides a unique approach to both writing and analyzing films.
