Drama Notes

Drama is an English word meaning thereby to enact e.g. a written discourse containing dialogues, actions, verbal and non-verbal gestures etc. However, it generally is considered in theatrical form where written dramas are performed by actors and actresses. It is considered the oldest form of art.

e. This would be interesting to note that both John Milton and William Shakespeare used blank verse. Whereas Jon Milton was writing poetry whereas William Shakespeare was writing dramas, mostly.

Several other writers have used the diction for drama in this format.
