1 Warm-Up: Dramatic Literary Devices Collect handouts and copy these definitions: Chorus - character/narrator coming on stage and giving a prologue or explicit background information or themes. Aside - Words spoken by an actor directly to the audience, but not "heard" by the other characters on stage during a play. Soliloquy - A speech delivered by a character while he/she is alone on stage. He/she is able to “talk to him/herself” by expressing his/her thoughts, mood, or opinion aloud Monologue – A long, uninterrupted speech made by a character on stage with other characters.

2 Monologue vs. Soliloquy Monologue Monologue Soliloquy One character Long, uninterrupted speech Everyone can hear it Contains a moral lesson or thematic message Occurs during or after a climatic event Only the audience can hear it Usually one character on stage Expresses inner thoughts and feelings
