The text is illustrated with black-and-white photography, line drawings, and flowcharts. In this book an attempt is made at developing linguistic model for the semiotics of culture, and to apply this to the analysis of a number of Russian and Polish dramatic texts, mostly from the 19th century. Special chapters are devoted to the performance of drama, and to some urgent issues concerning the structure of semiotics base. The last and most lengthy chapter presents an outline of so-called text linguistics, here conceived as a variety of case Grammar, duely revised for application to the analysis of drama and its non-verbal context. The book addresses itself to readers familiar with Slavic languages and interested in the relation between language and literary themes, and the place of drama in culture.
