F. Scott Fitzgerald famously praised the ability to hold in mind two opposing ideas (without cracking up). He could have been talking about stories—they do it all the time. The opposition of ideas can be obvious, such as when good is battling evil, or Goofus is slacking, while Gallant does the chores. In this Eleventh Hour, we’ll take a whirlwind tour of some of the other, more subtle ways that stories hold the line between conflicting viewpoints, and talk as well about how such tensions might shape the end of a story.
