I feel that the success of any play would depend very much on how the audience is affected by what is presented on stage How the playwrite conveys the themes to the audience is an important factor in the enjoyment of a drama In this instance I personally feel that the drama a view from the bridge is successful on many levels For starters in the beginning the introduction does a fantastic dual job at grasping the attention of the audience and providing a background of the scenes that follow Though very unusual for a Drama to start off with introductions by a narrator A lawyer Alfieri re-tells his account as he oversees the events that take place The play is in two acts but careful incisions by Alfieri help the audience to reflect on the events that have just happened The title of the play is based on the Brooklyn Bridge and Alfieri having a view from on top of it Since this play is supposed to be a modern version of a tragedy tragic events take place throughout the play The concept of impending doom is something that is threatening to happen and throughout this essay I will go into depth about how Arthur Miller created this atmosphere through his written language and stage directions This thrilling and tragic drama is about incestuous love jealousy and betrayal Alfieri is a lawyer who works for the Sicilian community in Brooklyn He opens the play with a very exposing account of what life used to be like and is like in that particular community The audience knows from that speech everything about Alfieri and about the community in Red Hook He launches into graphic detail about past bandits and murders and about how justice is very important to the ItaliansThis brings about a sense of forboding as it gives a hint to the audience of what to expect The community is the gullet
