A great book that provides a simple explanation, with good examples, of how to analyze a well-written novel. If more than a few contemporary "authors" spent a few days reading this book before spitting out their trash, we would all suffer less from much of the poorly written detritus that gums up the shelves of bookstores - physical and electronic. Sadly, Gordon's book has been out of print for many decades.
