O status dos personagens históricos no drama: Ontológico, Estético e Verisimilar





Personagens históricos, Drama, Michael Frayn


Usando as representações de Niels Bohr e Werner Heisenberg em Frayn's Copenhagen como pedra de toque, o artigo explora o status ontológico de personagens históricos em drama. Ele argumenta que os personagens de ficção, baseados ou não em indivíduos históricos, habitam um reino de ficção e podem, por uma série de razões, divergir consideravelmente de seus homólogos do mundo real.
