    Absurd Drama is a sub-genre of Drama that focuses on the absurdity of human existence. Absurdism in simple words means efforts of human beings to find the centre or in other words the meaning of his life and his failure in doing so due to the limits of humanity.

    Absurd Drama was popularised by Albert Camus through his philosophy of absurdism. Camus belonged to the time of World Wars and hence he had seen mass killings of people that made him believe that there is no meaning of life and that every person gives his own meaning to it.

    His work The Misunderstanding is one of the best examples of Absurd Drama.

    Candida is the eponymous protagonist of the play Candida by GB Shaw. The word Candid means frank and so she is. Right from the beginning, we can understand how caring and wise she is. In scene 1, she comes to her own home from her parents’ home to take children’s winter clothes. Finding everything in on ordered condition, she begins arranging all the things.

    In the play she is depicted as strong which is on contrary to the traditional belief that men are strong and bold and women are weak. In this way, the play questions the discrimination with the women on the basis of gender.

    Shaw has tried to change the gender roles to show the strength of woman. James Morell, Candida’s husband is a clergyman who considers himself to be ideal husband because he believes that Candida is dependent on him. But later on it becomes clear that Candida is not dependent on him. She can sustain herself and has ample of other opportunities (like marrying Eugene Marchbanks).

    During the auction scene, it is Candida who decides to live with James and not because she cannot live without him but because he cannot live without her.

    On the other hand, James Morell is weaker and less wise than Candida. He is totally dependent on her and cannot live without her. As an emancipated or new woman, Candida can be considered to be the ideal of Victorian Era.

    The final stanza of the poem Kubla Khan by ST Coleridge is about the willing suspension of disbelief. The poet sees in the dream, a damsel (a virgin girl) with dulcimer (a musical instrument) who belongs to Abyssinia (She is Black) and is playing for Mount Abora. 

    According to the poet, the symphony and song of her musical instrument are so charming that he desires to revive it in himself. And using it he would be able to build Kubla Khan’s dome in the air (i.e.in imaginations) that will have those caves of ice.

    Those who would see him building imaginations will cry that he has drunk the milk of paradise i.e. he has achieved the supreme happiness that an ordinary person cannot achieve. The lines are quite symbolic as they depict the power of imaginations and how a poet can achieve anything in them.

    Read the summary of the poem Kubla Khan here.
