"D. PAGES" -- DRAMATURGY AND QUESTIONING: "The reluctance to accept
dramaturgy and dramaturg as English words reflects a deeper
resistance to thinking about the theatrical process as a whole. . . .
DRAMATURGY AND PHYSICS: "To talk about a dramaturg and
dramaturgy, perhaps we ought to resort to physics. A dramaturg
can be a particle or a wave. When we expect one, we always
get the other. In recent history, he, she or it tends to be a
'particle' because the wide spectrum of functions rests in one
person or one identifiable group of people who call themselves
dramaturgs. This is a fairly recent phenomenon.

Summer 2003: THR215 Dramatic Literature and THR413 Playscript Analysis have their own subdirectories with the new vertical structure (another level subdirectories -- 1, 2, 3 and so on). I needed to separate two classes (first is an intro to "Grammar of Drama") and I can't make more pages in main (root) directory.
It will take me a while to develop this new vertical heirharchy.
Also, the Themes directory; I try to organize the topical linkage between writers and plays. "Death" -- of course, you can find this subject in many dramas. And this why you can see at the top the motto "Script Analysis of the Last Century" (20th -- my main interest; the transition from modernity to postmodernity).
I don't know if I will time to plug in the "Philosophers" (ideas from Aristotle, Marx and Foucault), but nevertheless I want to place paintings, literature of the periods relavent to each playwright...
Oh, sweet dreams!
