Dialogue - The Locket

- Dialogue - The Locket At midnight, Paul went outside and sat on the bench on the old, plank porch. Despite bundling himself in a heavy blanket, he shivered in the cold. The eastern sky before him was dotted with stars, scintillating above the quiet spread of desert. A few lonely clouds were drifting by. Patricia timidly opened the door; hesitant to disrupt Paul’s solitude. As he glanced up at Patricia, she could see the melancholy in his eyes. “What you said today at the funeral was beautiful,” she murmured....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

Although every writer had a different way to approach these traits, it is clear that in Krapp’s last tape they were meant to create a modernist case. The play is set up as a monologue.
