This course provides students with the basic theoretical frameworks and practical skills needed for analysing drama. We will discuss and apply the most essential concepts of drama analysis, from ancient and Early Modern theories of tragedy and the distinction between absolute and epic drama to methods of figure characterisation, the categories of time and space, and contemporary discussions concerning the relation between text and performance.

We will work with two full-length plays, which will be announced shortly and excerpts from various plays from different historical periods and of different genres, which will be made available on Digicampus.

Drama analysis is one of the five major areas relevant to literary studies (prose, drama, poetry, film, and literary theory). This course is intended for all students of English and American Studies, who are advised to have attended courses in all five of these areas before registering for their final exams.
