What Are the Characteristics of Modern Drama?

Answer

The characteristics of modern drama are realism, naturalism and interaction between characters and the readers. Modern drama under great influence of Ibsen ceased to deal with themes remote in time and place. Modern drama gave up melodramatic romanticism and pseudo-classical remoteness, and start treating the actual life, making drama a drama of ideas. Real drama must deal with emotions.
