The Writer’s Journey, 3rd edition, is an indispensable guide to the inner workings of stories, to the ancient and deep-seated patterns of emotion that speak to us through the symbolic language of myth.
Christopher Vogler, one of Hollywood’s most renowned story consultants and teachers, expands his vision to show how storytelling evolved from sacred rituals and how its inexhaustible powers can be adapted to the needs of modern storytellers. New chapters on conflict, polarisation, and catharsis add dimensions to the core material of The Writer’s Journey that is now THE MOST widely used book in the movie, TV, publishing, and computer gaming industries.
"This book is like having the smartest person in the story meeting come home with you and whisper what to do in your ear as you write a screenplay. Insight for insight, step for step, Chris Vogler takes us through the process of connecting theme to story and making a script come alive." - Lynda Obst, Sleepless in Seattle, One Fine Day, Contact, Author of Hello, He Lied"
