In Medias Res Definition

In medias res is Latin for "in the midst of things" describes a narrative or an epic that begins, at some place in the middle of the plot — generally at some critical point in the action. One way to tell a story is to introduce the reader to the environment of the story. Anything that happens after the opening in medias res is left up to the writer. The foundation of in medias res is based on the form of the Odyssey and Homer in the Iliad.
