Analyzing drams is like listening to a movie, but not seeing the movie. If we can’t see them movie, we must listen to what the characters say to tell us about them. We also must know what the characters are doing because actions tell us a lot about people. It is important to know what kind of people or characters are in the play, where the play takes place, and what is happening.
Plays often use narrators to tell us many of the above items. Plays also can have a character give us much of this important information.
This packet is designed to help you understand how to analyze drama.
