Soliloquy Definition | Writing

A soliloquy is a dramatic or literary device in which a character speaks their thoughts aloud, revealing their innermost feelings, motivations, and decisions to the audiencebut not other characters. It‘s like a monologue, but without the audience’s participation. And, of course, it‘s the best way to get all your feelings out without having to talk to anyone else!

Think of famous movie lines where the main character directly speaks to the audience, like in Fight Club or Wanted.
