We–human beings–consume stories every day, and we currently have a dazzling, even astonishing wealth of choices, every day. Most of these stories are Action Packed: this Thing blows up, this Heart throbs with passion, that Organization carries out some evil plot, this Person figures it out. We will examine the world of everyday storytelling across many mediums, from poetry to comic books to television, and across time, from the mid-19th century to the present.
