You could start by looking at how this form made it possible for characters to debate with themselves on moral and philosophical matters. This is typical of the Renaissance where a new humanist philosophy was beginning to replace the medieval idea that everything is God's will. Soliloquies like Hamlet's "To be or not to be" or Macbeth's "if it were done, when 'tis done" are good examples of this.
