This article is about speeches to oneself. For the psychological phenomenon, see self-talk.

A soliloquy (, from Latin solo "to oneself" + loquor "I talk", plural soliloquies) is a monologue addressed to oneself, thoughts spoken out loud without addressing another.

Soliloquies are used as a device in drama to let a character make their thoughts known to the audience, address it directly or take it into their confidence. English Renaissance drama used soliloquies to great effect, such as in the soliloquy "To be, or not to be", the centerpiece of Shakespeare's Hamlet.
