In ancient Greek dramas, the point of discovery, or the dawning of insight in the understanding of the protagonist, is known as anagnorisis in Greek; recognition in English. Within the story, the audience is made aware of information that the hero does not know, raising tension and suspense within the narrative. Then, in a pivotal encounter with some aspect of truth, insight is given, and recognition holds the key to resolving issues of crisis or opportunity as the story develops.
