  1. past of harangue

Extensive Definition

A monologue is an extended, uninterrupted speech by a single person. The person may be speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing other persons, e.g. an audience, a character, or a reader.
As a literary device, it is most common in dramatic genres (plays, opera, animated cartoons, film) but can also be found in prose fiction. The term can also be applied to poems, which usually take the form of the thoughts or speech of a single individual. In everyday usage, a long, rather boring speech by a conversation partner is sometimes called a monologue as well.
The term 'dramatic monologue' is used both for monologues in plays and for a poetic genre.
