Drama is the generic name for works intended for performances on the stage. In the center of the drama is always the conflict between the characters, dominated by monologues and dialogues of the characters – both in prose and in verse.

While reading dramatic works, the contractor conveys subtexts, intentions, feelings of the characters, expressed in intonation, and characteristic features of his speech.

It is important to consider the specificity of dramatic works, namely drama, tragedy, comedy or vaudeville. This will depend on the intonation of the reader. When reading the attention of the artist focuses on the transfer of conversation of the characters. The reader with different shades of intonation conveys the characters (no reincarnation).

The reader must remember that it is not the role of the artist and the narrator of "alien" dialogue or monologue. The text should be directed only to the audience, even if recited a monologue. The following are proposed elements for performing analysis of dramatic works:

- Familiarization with the identity of the author;
