Стр. 64 Aristotle's traditional plot analysis does not work equally well for all plays, not even for all older plays. For some of the most original modern plays, it does not work at all. Nothing (or almost nothing) precedes the complication in Maria Irene. Стр. 196 Accordingly, the plot develops a variety of events and activities.

Understanding Plays CH 3: Understanding character Millys S. Barranger Character’s doubleness, Drama is unique among the representational arts in that it represents reality by using real human beings. Barranger Character’s doubleness, Drama is unique among the representational arts in that it represents reality by using real human beings - to create its fictional universe. We have said that drama is essentially mimetic action. However, action springs from character. It is a product of the characters’ motivations and circumstances. In some plays, those motivations and circumstances are more complex than in others.

From Wikipedia: A play is a form of literature written by a playwright, usually consisting of scripted dialogue between characters, intended for theatrical performance rather than just reading. There are rare dramatists, notably George Bernard Shaw, who have had little preference whether their plays were performed or read. The term "play" can refer to both the written works of playwrights and to their complete theatrical performance.[1] ~~~ Comedies are plays which are designed to be humorous. Comedies are often filled with witty remarks, unusual characters, and strange circumstances. Certain comedies are geared toward different age groups. Comedies were one of the two original play types of Ancient Greece, along with tragedies. An examples of a comedy would be William Shakespeare's play "A Midsummer Night Dream," or for a more modern example the skits from "Saturday Night Live".[2][3] ~~~ Farce. A generally nonsensical genre of play, farces are often overacted and often involve slapstick humour. An example of a farce includes William Shakespeare's play "The Comedy of Errors," or Mark Twain's play "Is He Dead?" ~~~ Satirical. A satire play takes a comic look at current events and famous people while at the same time attempting to make a political or social statement, for example pointing out corruption. An example of a satire would be Nikolai Gogol's The Government Inspector and Aristophanes' Lysistrata. ~~~ Tragedy. These plays often involve death and are designed to cause the reader or viewer to feel sadness. Tragic plays convey all emotions, and have extremely dramatic conflicts. Tragedy was one of the two original play types of Ancient Greece. Some examples of tragedies include William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, and also John Webster's play The Duchess of Malfi. ~~~ Historical. These plays focus on actual historical events. They can be tragedies or comedies, but are often neither of these. History as a separate genre was popularised by William Shakespeare.
