Timescape: History Plays and Isolation

58

Nature is a dynamic, isolating force in many Saskatchewan radio plays. The

physical isolation of landscape and climate often parallels, or exacerbates psychological

isolation of characters. Such images of isolation are not limited to plays dealing with

Saskatchewan history. In the following chapter, James Quandt’s radio plays will be

explored for similar themes of the land and physical isolation, woman and nature, and the

tragic images associated with winter. The howling wind, the freezing cold, and the

empty space parallel the wounded emotional self, the frozen heart, and the broken spirit.
