Example text

The result of their plays is a powerful shift in the language of form and the meaning of content, congeries of disparate philosophical and psychological inclinations of modernism. They overturned the nineteenth-century style of melodrama that was essentially predictable, stolid, and sentimental, by creating explosive challenges to conventional wisdom. The basic structure of melodrama was the pièce bien faite, the well-made play used ubiquitously by dramatist Emile Augier, August von Kotzebue, Victorien Sardou, and Alexander Dumas fils, but none more so than Augustin-Eugène Scribe (1791–1861).
