To begin with, a typical classical drama starts with protasis (exposition), followed by epitasis (complication) and catastasis (new and further element of complication), reaching catastrophe (resolution), and is wound up with epilogue. The catastrophe consists of peripeteia (reversal of fortune or conversio) and anagnorisis (transition from ignorance to knowledge or cognitio). Epitasis and catastasis are achieved by creatively combining elements of suspense and surprise with narrative knots and twists.
