From the Back Cover:

Structuring Your Novel shows you how to employ the techniques used by professional novelists in writing a novel of your own. Fourteen elements of structure--the ones found in most successful novels--are described and illustrated through excerpts from seven popular works, ranging from Henry Fielding's epic tale Tom Jones to Harper Lee's modern classic To Kill a Mockingbird. From the very first chapter, the exercises in this book get you started on your own novel and guide you in developing your theme, refining your plot, rounding out your characters, and completing your story.

Synopsis:

Discusses how to develop and use conflict, plot, point of view, theme, characterization, and other elements in the traditional novel, using examples from major works from the eighteenth throught the mid-twentieth century.
