PREFERRED TERM
1802Parabassis  
SCOPE NOTE
  • Element of the attic comedy, irrelevant to the plot of the play, when the dramatic action is suspended, becoming a means of expressing the views of the poet. The Chorus addresses the audience directly breaking the dramatic illusion to announce the views, proclamations, and the advice of the playwright, stepping temporarily aside from its dramatic part. Usually parabassis followed the agon, while at the early stages of attic comedy it used to end the play.
