ENG 125 Week 5 DQ 2
All literature involves some kind of performance, which is intended for an audience. Sometimes, however,
the performative quality of a work (i.e., the fact that it is being presented to an audience) is more obvious
than at others. Drama and poetry, for example, tend to emphasize overt performance more than do short
stories, which more often are read silently and in solitude.
How is the more direct per formative aspect of drama and/or poetry reflected in these forms? (Consider for
example, each genre’s uses of literary structure, language, technique, and style.) How do these literary
elements affect your reading experience?
In your post, identify key qualities of drama and poetry, which emphasize their performative qualities.
Discuss how these characteristics shape your reading response. Support your views with at least one
example of a dramatic text and one example of a poem.
