B.A Drama - Drama is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance. The term comes from a Greekword meaning "action" , which is derived from "to do" or "to act" . The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stagebefore an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. The structure of dramatic texts, unlike other forms of literature, is directly influenced by this collaborative production and collective reception. The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional generic division between comedyand tragedy. They are symbols of the ancient Greek Muses, Thalia and Melpomene. Thalia was the Muse of comedy (the laughing face), while Melpomene was the Muse of tragedy (the weeping face).
