Line-by-line dialogue between two characters is integral to Tragedy's verse-form. Although stylised and easy enough to schematize, it is often elusive in function and meaning for the characters's reactions and intentions. The article traces developments in the study of the form, from analyses of verbal and structural techniques to appreciation as drama.
