45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters

At a Glance

  • Details every character archetype and how to use them in a story
  • Not a book about clichés, but rather a book about eternal character models that persist over time
  • An invaluable resource for all writers of fiction, including teachers and students

Every novelist, screenwriter, and storyteller faces the challenge of creating original and exciting characters. Archetypes—mythic, cross-cultural models from which all characters originate—provide a solid foundation upon which to fashion new and vastly different characters to populate your story.

 Recommended by Library Journal, 45 Master Characters explores the most common male and female archetypes, provides instructions for using them to create your own original characters, and gives examples of how other authors have brought such archetypes to life in novels, film, and television. This new edition includes a free downloadable bonus archetype that expands upon the content in the physical edition.
