Lebedeva A.I. Dramatic and Epic in the Play (Eugène Scribe, Alexander Ostrovsky)
The author points out the large role of the plot conflict, which is successfully resolved in the final in the play “Comradeship, or the Ladder of Glory” (1837) of Eugène Scribe. A different trend can be traced in the plays of Alexander Ostrovsky, remarkable for their characterology: the playwright introduces a lot of “extra” characters, his plays introduce dialogues on topics that are not directly related to the main plot.
