11 Dramatic Terminology Tragedy: A narrative about serious and important actions that end unhappily, usually with the death of the main characters. A tragic hero: by Aristotle's definition, a man who is neither completely evil nor good, but somewhere in between. The audience will usually identify or sympathize with the tragic hero, instinctively. This character has a tragic flaw. (often takes the form of a metaphorical blindness or madness. Dies in the end.
12 The Top 10 Signs You re Reading a Shakespearean Tragedy: 10. There is a tragic hero (or an exceptional being) who has a tragic flaw. 9. The external conflict is between two groups, one of which the hero belongs. 8. The internal conflict within the tragic hero is of the human spirit [i.e. good versus evil, desire versus doubt]. 7. The misfortunes of the tragedy are caused by the actions of the people. 6. Chance/Fortune/Fate plays a hand in the action of the tragedy. 5. There is a sense of urgency within the plot that drives the tragic hero to act (sometimes impulsively). 4. The tragic hero is responsible for the ultimate catastrophe. 3. Before the downfall, the tragic hero displays courage or nobility, which makes the reader recognize his/her potential for greatness. 2. The tragic hero s fate affects the wellbeing of the whole nation or empire of the story. ***And the NUMBER 1 sign you may be reading 1. The tragic hero dies in the end.
13 The play is broken up into acts and the acts are broken up into scenes. Prologue: A brief opening of a play spoken by the chorus that settles the audience and previews the plot. Monologue: A long uninterrupted speech given by one character onstage to everyone. Soliloquy: A long uninterrupted speech given by one character alone on stage, inaudible to other characters Aside: A short speech given by one character, traditionally the other characters cannot hear. Comic Relief: The inclusion of a humorous character, scene or witty dialogue in an otherwise serious work, often to relieve tension In R & J, look for moments of comic relief that help relieve the tragedy of the situation Ex: The musicians making puns with Peter after Juliet is found dead.
14 Pun: A humorous play on words After that poisonous snake struck at me in the Arizona Desert I was really rattled. A gossip is someone with a great sense of rumor. A carpenter must have been here. I saw dust. Energizer Bunny arrested - charged with battery. Corduroy pillows are making headlines. The executioner decided to drop out of Executioner School. It was just too cut throat for him. He who farts in church sits in his own pew. Did you hear about the sleeping man who got run over by a car? He was tired and exhausted!
15 Foreshadowing: a literary device in which an author drops subtle hints about plot developments to come later in the story Simile: a figure of speech that makes a comparison between 2 unlike things, using a word such as like, as Ex. She floated in like a cloud on a breezy day. Metaphor: a figure of speech that makes a comparison between 2 unlike things without the use of specific words of comparison such as like or as Ex: The book was a passport to adventure. Oxymoron: a figure of speech that combines opposite or contradictory terms in a brief phrase Ex: sweet sorrow loud silence jumbo shrimp Dramatic Irony: when the audience knows something the characters do not know Ex: We know the killer is in the closet, but the soon-to-be victim does not.
16 Motif: a recurrent thematic element in a literary or artistic work Motifs in Romeo and Juliet are: 1. opposites, contradictions, and opposing pairs 2. light and dark imagery / day and night 3. time Foil character: a character that contrasts the personality traits of another character, usually opposites. Hyperbole: an exaggeration or overstatement used for effect Ex: My backpack weighs a ton!
