Summary

KEY BENEFIT: Quality selections at an affordable price. Chronologically organized and including playwrights from classical Greece to contemporary Broadway, the featured selections reflect the work of the genre's most distinguished playwrights. An introduction to the genre discusses the origins of drama, the literary elements, and film adaptations of plays. New selections include a one-act play by Chicana playwright Milcha Sanchez-Scott reflecting the struggle of a Cuban-American to find her way in American mainstream culture. A brief one-act by Arlene Hutton has the makings of a feminist classic, according to one reviewer. New selections from Sophocles, Ibsen, and August Wilson offer echoes of todayrs"s politics (Antigone),an adaptation by Arthur Miller(An Enemy of the People),and a classic from one of Americars"s most admired playwrights(The Piano Lesson). For anyone interested in an affordable introduction to drama anthology with quality selections.
