Sarah Kane, an Architect of Drama

Abstract :
This reading of Sarah Kane’s five plays analyses the way they divide into two radically different theatre styles, which imply two different architectures, one based on violence, the other on linguistic techniques. Blasted, Phaedra’s Love and Cleansed come under the first type of structure, with extremes of cruelty, while Crave and 4:48 Psychosis are built upon verbal devices of all kinds and appear as real word-feats, which make the drama.
