Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho tem por objetivo analisar a forma épica na peça We, the People, escrita pelo dramaturgo norte-americano Elmer Rice [1892-1967]. Essa peça, composta por vinte cenas e mais de quarenta personagens, foi escrita em 1932 e encenada em 1933, nos Estados Unidos, dentro de um dos períodos mais conturbados da história norte-americana: a Grande Depressão [1929 até o final dos anos 1930]. Pretende-se analisar a esfera formal de We, the People, dedicando particular atenção aos recursos empregados para a representação de questões sócio-históricas. Considerando-se que essas questões não são representáveis enquanto tais por meio da estrutura dramática convencional, e que pertencem ao âmbito formal do épico, o trabalho tratará de examinar e discutir o uso de recursos épicos de concepção dramatúrgica e seus efeitos dentro da peça.

Abstract in English
This work aims at analyzing the epic form in the play We, the People written by the American playwright Elmer Rice [1892-1967]. This play is composed of twenty scenes and more than forty characters; it was written in 1932 and presented in 1933 in the United States of America during one of the most troubled period of the American history: the Great Depression [1929 end of the 1930s]. We intend to analyze the formal aspects of We, the People focusing mostly on the expedients used to represent socio-historical issues. Considering that these issues cannot be represented by using the conventional dramatic structure and that they belong to the epic form, this work will examine and debate the use of epic theater expedients and its effects in the play.
