Anti-Aristotelian

This term refers to plays that do not adhere to Aristotle's theory as advocated in Poetics. Specifically claimed as a position by Bertolt Brecht in his theoretical essays, and common in much non-naturalistic modern and contemporary drama, such anti-Aristotelian works are frequently called anti-neoclassicist plays (referring back to the French dramas of the 17th and 18th centuries).
