  • 7. Posting: Self-Assessment The blogging post points (200) require self-assessment. Consider three aspects of your posts: • First, how many of the posts did you make? • Second, what was the quality of your response? • Third, how timely were your submissions? Write a brief argument for your grade. You must include either a letter grade or points out of 200. This is due before class on Monday, March 18th. Send it electronically.
  • 8. Terms Last Batch!
  • 9. 19. Allusion: A reference to well-known people, places, or events from history, historical documents, literature, or myth, for example. 20. Motive: A reason for a character’s thoughts or actions. 21. Gesture: The physical movement of a character during a play. Gesture is used to reveal character, and may include facial expressions as well as movements of other parts of an actor's body. Sometimes a playwright will be very explicit about both bodily and facial gestures, providing detailed instructions in the play's stage directions. 19. Props: Articles or objects that appear on stage during a play. The Christmas tree in A Doll's House and Laura's collection of glass animals in The Glass Menagerie are examples.
  • 10. 23. Stage direction: A playwright's descriptive or interpretive comments that provide readers (and actors) with information about the dialogue, setting, and action of a play. Modern playwrights, including Ibsen, Shaw, Miller, and Williams tend to include substantial stage directions, while earlier playwrights typically used them more sparsely, implicitly, or not at all. 24. Staging: The spectacle a play presents in performance, including the position of actors on stage, the scenic background, the props and costumes, and the lighting and sound effects. 25. Fourth wall: The imaginary wall of the box theater setting, supposedly removed to allow the audience to see the action.
