The shapes of stories according to Kurt Vonnegut (infographic)

This beautiful infographic, designed by a talented New York designer Maya Eilam, is based on Kurt Vonnegut’s rejected master’s thesis. It’s presented together with contemporary examples.

The key idea of the thesis was that the main character has ups and downs – and that this can be graphed to reveal the story’s shape.
