Default Re: Fatal Flaw?

Mac,

not that I agree with any of this stuff, as I am trying to figure how he mixes Plot and Theme in his theory, here's Shawshank


Antagonist: Corrupt system of government/courts
Protagonist: Red
MC: Andy

Now the story is always told from Red's POV; that is why at the end you don't really know what happend to Andy when he escapes - it's jsut the next day and he's gone.

The beginning is - what they would call in the literary world - a prelude.

Red's up for parole - he's the one fighting the system - at the end he's the one that beats the system.
