  1. What a soliloquy is
  2. Is 'Fool for Love' a Greek tragedy?
  3. The role of the Old Man

Theatre, and particularly drama, uses all kinds of rhetorical and situational tools to create a particular ambience that permeates everything from setting to the actor's performances. One of these rhetorical tools is soliloquy. Creating a sort of intimacy between a character and the audience, and giving people more information, soliloquy is a useful form of speech. In ?Fool For Love', Sam Shepard imagined a much more complicated relationship between The Old Man, Eddie and May, and the audience. Discussing the history of soliloquy, and analyzing The Old Men interruptions in the play, I'll try to point out what kind of speech the latter is using, and why his form of speech is more appropriate to understand his role in the play than a soliloquy.
