DIALOGUE


Bernard Grebanier

Does the dialogue . .
  • contribute to dramatic incident?
  • avoid talk for the sake of talk?
  • maintain comprehensibility and interest?
  • match character?
  • link the beginning of one speech to the speech just ended?
  • allot the most important things being said to the opening and close of a speech?
  • convey only one important dramatic idea or ruling emotion in any speech?
  • never mirror a complete reversal in emotion inside a single speech?
