About This Talk

This talk will focus on a form of dramatic text that is as old as dramatic writing itself: the monologue. The word itself indicates what it is about – an individual’s statement. But what distinguishes the monologue as a dramatic form? Is it even possible to have an individual’s pronouncement on stage, isn’t there always a second party present? How political can a dramatic text form be?
