What Is Drama In Literature?

The audience likes drama for its entertainment. Watching the actors perform a story adds realism to the work. Many people enjoy watching dramas in the form of movies or television in the age of binge watching.
Much Ado About Nothing
Dialogue and performance are used in drama. It is a literary genre that is an imitation of action. Drama is a type of play that is written for a variety of media.
Much Ado About Nothing is a Shakespearian comedy that is frequently performed. The play is funny because the love between Hero and Claudio is laughable, as they never get to communicate on stage until they get married. Their relationship is not developed or deep.
They end up being caricatures, showing what people face when their relationships are weak. Benedick and Beatrice's communications are very sparky and they hate each other, which is amusing. They all start loving each other after making up.

The Stage and the Film: A Different Kind of Drama
Drama is a literary genre that is similar to other forms of literature, but has a distinct characteristic that makes it different. Dramatic works use seven elements of fiction, which are a setting, characters, a problem, a plot, suspense, a point of view, and a theme, to tell a story. Drama is different from other literature in that it is performed by actors on stage or in a film in front of an audience.
The performers wear costumes to help portray their characters, and speak the dialogue. The stage is decorated to make it look like the setting of the story. Drama can be very entertaining.
Watching a drama unfold before your eyes is quite interesting, compared to reading literature, where you visualize the story in your mind. If a play or film has a talented cast who portray their characters well, and have a well-designed set, it can be a spectacle to watch. Drama is different from other literature in that it is performed in front of an audience and uses a set, lighting, music, and costumes.
