Lectures on Dramatic Literature: Or The Employment of the Passions in the Drama is a book written by Saint-Mark Girardin in 1849. The book is a collection of lectures given by the author on the topic of dramatic literature and the use of emotions in the theater. Girardin explores the different ways in which playwrights have used emotions such as love, jealousy, anger, and despair to create compelling and memorable works of drama. He also delves into the history of dramatic literature, tracing its evolution from ancient Greek tragedy to the modern theater of his own time. Along the way, Girardin offers insights into the psychology of the human experience, as well as the art of storytelling and the role of the playwright in shaping our understanding of the world.
