background image Given Circumstances Stanislavsky – “A unique combination of present and past” Thomas – “The specific conditions in which the action of the play 
occurs”
Fuchs – “A play is not a flat work of literature, not a description in 
poetry of another word, but it is in itself another passing before you in 
time and space”
First things:  Space: confined or wide open, island or a cave, etc? Time: stand still, frantic or staccato, leisurely or easy going, linear or 
psychologic, cyclical?
Climate: storms, extreme heat, paralyzing cold, stifling 
(urban/suburban)
Mood: tone Music
*There must be actual evidence of all this in the text*
The Social World: Public/Private Patterns How do figures appear How do figures interact Who has power Language habits What changes: Landscape Time Language What doesn’t change Don’t forget yourself: What has the world demanded of me? o Were you changed after reading play? Theatrical Mirrors
The Character Fits the Pattern:
How does the Psychology Function? Nothing in the play is by accident! James Thomas: Death of a Salesman Example A. Time:  1. Time of Composition: 1948
2. Time of Action: 1948—the same; “then” - 1928
3. Dramatic Time (include textual citations): ~24 hrs
4. Significance to the world of the play: modern tragedy, shift in the 
world
