Can you post some links? I literally cannot figure out what you're talking about. Is "Deep Literary Theme Theory" a specific theory? Googling "deep literary theme theory" in quotes yields only four links, two of them that are clearly out of date, one of them to this discussion, another to another forum in which you (it must be you) try to make a similar argument against Dramatica.
If you mean it more generally, then it makes even less sense. I have a B.A. in English Literature. I've read Derrida and Lacan and Benjamin and Harold Bloom. I've sat in seminars and written papers. Does that count?
Seriously? I've read some pretty questionable published books that I would be hard pressed to define a "deep literary theme" for. But I agree that great stories make a deep thematic argument. The entire point of Dramatica is to help make that thematic argument.
Since we haven't established what "deep-literary theme theory" even is, this assertion is meaningless.
If you google "four throughlines" the results are all about Dramatica. I have never seen another theory that uses four throughlines. Do you have a link? Also what do you mean when you say Harper Lee "used" the hero's journey? Does she mention this somewhere in her writing process?
It is unlikely that she used Dramatica, as To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960.
It's a great story, but in what sense is it the gold standard? (As opposed to Hamlet, Romeo and Juliette, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, etc. etc.)
What does "pure story" mean to you? Do you mean it's not a GAS? Does this mean that you accept Dramatica's idea of a grand argument, but you think the official analysis is wrong? Or do you think Dramatica's approach is somehow incomplete? Your argument so far is circular.
It sounds like you have developed your own theories about Rear Window, which appear to conflict with your understanding of Dramatica. Why not just say that? Making vague references to "literary themes" and assertions about how other unnamed published authors would back you up isn't going to convince anyone here (even if we could understand what you're talking about).
