Hi there,

a quick question:

"How does the critique respond to the duality of the play and ________ it in the stage interpretation?"

What is the most proper way to use the verb "express" in the blank? "Express," "expresses", "how does it express it"?
AnonymousHow does the critique respond to the duality of the play and express(es) it in the stage interpretation?
The auxilliary verb "does" distributes to both main verbs, and they should appear in the base form.

How does the critique respond to X and express it?

As an aside, I find the idea of the critique expressing the duality of the play in the stage interpretation a bit abstruse, but I expect you have something in mind.

I expect you mean that the critique shows how to properly interpret the play on stage so as to express its duality.

(I'm not proposing a rewrite.) Emotion: shake
Thanks a lot! Yes, I just made up that sentence on a topic related to one I'm working on, I see it's jumbled a bit.
