In parallel with the Prague School, Otakar Zich's The Aesthetics of Dramatic Art (1931, 1986) shows notable methodological affinity with Aristotle's treatment of the art of drama, item (1) systematic and analytical approach to theatre; (2) mimetic theory of drama; (3) hylomorphic explanation of the 'actor-figure'; (4) active role of a viewer in forming mental images; (5) analysis of dramatic relations and the whole of fictional action. Proceeding point by point, I look for both similarities to and differences from Aristotle's theory of art and drama, and explore the theoretic presuppositions of Otakar Zich's chef d'oeuvre.
