Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Soliloquy

A dramatic convention by means of which a character, alone onstage, utters his or her thoughts aloud. Playwrights use soliloquies as a convenient way to inform the audience about a character’s motivations and state of mind. Shakespeare’s Hamlet delivers perhaps the best known of all soliloquies, which begins: “To be or not to be.”
