"The 39 Steps of Self-Division" is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the theater and in literary criticism. Original and innovative, "The 39 Steps of Self-Division" presents a detailed structure of the Self-Division process, which depicts a protagonist torn within his soul between two opposing courses of action. Author Sam Zebba brings years of teaching and analytical exploration to the formation of his 39-step 'flow chart' guiding a play's advance. In clear and easy to understand language, and with the use of instantly comprehensible tables, Zebba demonstrates the structure's undeniable function, and exposes the startling step-by-step uniformity in the following six famous, unrelated Self-Division plays.
  • Sophocles' "Qedipus"
  • Shakespeare's "Hamlet and Othello"
  • Brecht's "Galileo"
  • Pirandello's "Henry IV"
  • Bates' & Lean's "Summer Madness"
"The 39 Steps of Self-Division" is a useful, inventive, and insightful aid to a better understanding of structure in some of dramatic literature's most highly regarded masterpieces.
