“The Artistic” and “The Literary” in Short Types of Dramatic Creations

Anila Vogli

Abstract


Even in his most important piece of work ‟Poetics‟, Aristotle the ancient Greek
philosopher, does not simply lines up the classification of the types of literary creations; but he identifies their individual features. So, he considered comedy as different, compared to the three other types: (tragedy, the epic poetry and lyric poetry), because “comedy” searches the ideal form of expression (representation); never in search of forms which imitate life itself. Fiction and
invented realities, characters from the low levels of society, the commoner, the banal and the vulgar, the small things that are taken to be as “great”, are some other features of comedy, which would not be enough anyway, to consider comedy as “beautiful”. In this context, it is indispensable the presence of ‟the artistic‟ and ‟the literary‟, that an art work can own the status of a sublime
expression; can own the status of a form of artistic communication that radiates indispensably messages that can travel through different generations and time periods. In short forms of dramaturgy creations (sketches, parody, comedy in one act, couplet, etc.) through ‟the artistic‟ and ‟the literary‟, somewhere “the ugly” is presented as “beautiful”, somewhere “the old” faces “the modern”, the coward sells himself like the greatest hero, bad habits are sold like virtues, and out of this we get “the laughter” that brings optimism and deliberation from life frustrations to the viewer or the reader. For as long as “the art” is not a mere copy of the real things in life, but a transformed artistic recognition, the doze of “the artistic” determines the value of the literary creation. In different humorous creations, the drawing of dramatic characters and situations in which they discover themselves, would never attract the spectator (the reader or the viewer) if they would not have within them “alive” elements of “the artistic‟ and ‟the literary‟, which could be recognizable as: 1-in a conflictual form; 2- in a conflict resolution form, 3-from the point of view of the comic writer.

Keywords: Literary, Artistic, Dramaturgy, Humor.
