Book Description
"Soliloquy as a theatrical devic e dates back to ancie nt times.
According to Lloyd A. Skiffington, it ca n be found in the Greek
playwrights Aeschylus, Sophocles. and Euripides. although not in large
numbers. Two of its fundamental types of the time are plot-exposition
and character-descriptio n, and a third. homily, was ""bo rn essen tially
of Roman drama in the second century B.c."" (3· 4. II). Yet ""Medieval
drama. liturgical or secular. English or Continental"" has ""litt le or no
indebtednessto the wondrous classical past"" (25).
When. in th e Middle Ages. the myste ry pl ay or miracl e play
developed into the morality play, the characters were no longer Biblical
figures but allegorical abstract ions (50). The function s of soliloqu ies
remained larg ely uncha nged from cla ssical times. bu t wit h gre atly
improved technique of presentation. Skiffington divides morality drama
into three periods. In what he calls Early Moraliti es (ca. 1390- 1500),
there is a heavy tend ency toward personification; abstract ideas and
moral values become dramatic characters."
