Aristotle’s Poetics from the 4th century B.C. aims to give a short study of storytelling. It discusses things like unity of plot, reversal of situation, and character in the context of Greek tragedy, comedy and epic poetry. But it still applies today. It is especially popular with screenwriters as seen in many script gurus’ how-to books.

Narrator Robert Foster does a decent job

Robert Foster does a decent job here with handling Aristotle. He doesn't seem to have a great command over the text and he maybe should've read it before narrating it. He stumbles over words and his audio overmodulates a little.
