Climax

Post by hongyohan » Sat Dec 19, 2009 3:37 pm

The "climax" is the most intense part or the highest part of a song or a part in a drama/play.

ex.1) I love to listen to this song from the beginning to the end because I love how the song builds up at first and when it reaches the climax it puts me to tears.
- There are many songs that tend to be soft in the beginning, but as the song progresses forward, there is a part where it reaches an intense climax.

ex.2) The climax of the play was the final fight scene with Herbert and Jerry because it was so intense and violent.

In general, a climax (from the Greek word “κλῖμαξ” (klimax) meaning “staircase” and “ladder”) is a point of greatest intensity or force in an ascending series; i.e., a culmination. The term "climax" has many specific connotations and uses in English.

Climax is a very common word in drama or play. It is the highest part of any drama or play.

Climax is the soul of a drama or a movie. If there is no climax then there is nothing to watch in that drama or movie.
