Katherine Stockett's novel, The Help, makes deft use of "the dramatic question" to raise tension in her stories. What is meant by "dramatic question"?

Answer:

“What motivates my characters?” This is known as the dramatic question. The dramatic question is probably the single most important element in an entertaining story. It is a tool used to raise tension and is the force that drives the story along its path to its conclusion. Ask a question about the character that readers want answered, and they’re hooked.

Question:

Gustav Flaubert, author of the modernist novel "Madame Bovary," believed that, “The author, in his book, must be like God in the universe, everywhere present and nowhere visible.” What did he mean by this?

Answer:

Gustav Flaubert’s Madame Bovary was a major milestone in the development of modernist fiction. Author’s that wrote in this style devalued plot as a major emphasis in storytelling. They believed that they were above it; beyond it. They shifted their focus instead onto characterization, description, and style.
