Approaches to characterization in five plays carrying the theme of the Holocaust / by Jill Cary Martin.
This is a study of characterization in five plays sharing the theme of the Holocaust. Literary studies of Holocaust literature, journal articles, reviews, and dissertations were consulted in order to determine the range and types of characters developed in the plays. A broad spectrum of characterization was revealed, from the heroic individual to the community character, from the stereotypic villain to the subtle persuader. From these characters comes the distinct impression that much can be learned about the psychological effects of the Holocaust, and that such plays may serve as a challenge to audiences against a future Holocaust.
