The significance of plot without conflict

Unattributed, still eating oranges, Jul 04, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I thought this item made a nice point. It questions the necessity of the element of conflict in dramatic narrative. Central to the western tradition, conflict is absent in other traditions, such as the plot structure known as kishōtenketsu. "Kishōtenketsu contains four acts: introduction, development, twist and reconciliation." I like the concept, and think it stands well alongside the forms I grew up with and enjoy.
