Discipline: Literature, History



Before going into the core of the broad scope of my lecture, I wish to make it known that the subject which was entrusted to me is "Philippine Drama". If we consult an English dictionary for the meaning of the "drama" we will find the following:


"A composition in verse or prose portraying life or character by means of dialogue and action and designed for theatrical performance"
