Within the Discussion Forum area, write up to 200 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples from the plays read in class to reinforce your ideas:
- What are the important elements of drama? How are these similar and different than the elements found in short stories?
- What is irony, and how is it used in plays assigned this week?
- How does the setting or staging of a play help develop the drama?
