The Bald Soprano
The Bald Soprano as Booker's Seven Basic Plots Analysis Plot
Plot Type :
Sorry, Mr. Booker, Ionesco has you stumped on this one. The play purposely doesn't have a plot, so it doesn't fit into any of the typical story lines. Ionesco did think of the play as a "tragedy of language," but it just doesn't resemble Booker's idea of tragedy at all (source). Ionesco's "anti-play" breaks all the rules.
