Abstract: The puppet constitutes a realized paradox. Though inanimate, it not only lives; it enhances the complex charge of the human puppeteer, crystallizing it within mechanistic and aesthetic boundaries. At the same time, it reflects and alters the internal life of those who watch it. Its existence resides behind the curtain, in the house, and onstage; its reality bends according to the collaboration of every side. This paper attempts to identify the particular effects produced by puppets, the means by which they achieve these effects, and their value in the world of theater. Discussion of four puppet-plays from different countries, of which texts three are provided here in translation, demonstrates the breadth of the puppet's appeal; an appeal rooted in the mystery of inherent contradiction.
