Metadata[+] Show full item record
It is the purpose of this study to examine the subject-matter of those English dramas of 1900-1912 which portray serious action and produce tragic effect. In this study all purely aesthetic questions are ignored. The language medium in which the drama is expressed is considered only as it constitutes a question of characterization. Structure is ignored entirely. All considerations of the drama's suitability for stage production are ignored except as these are questions concerning plausibility and effectiveness of characterization.
