Summary

Spanning from the Golden Age of Greece to the present, this compact, affordable anthology of 14 plays provides a narrative representation of the evolution of theatre. The collection offers a balanced mix of plays commonly taught in introductory literature and plays authored by international and minority writers, such as Paula Vogel, not found in other brief anthologies. Students gain a critical appreciation for the art of dramatic writing by reading a diverse range of writers across the history of theatre.

  • An engaging general introduction includes a brief overview of the theater and a history of drama from an international perspective.
  • Writing about Drama, a separate introduction, helps students write effectively about plays by covering topics such as audience, context, and citation; the section includes a sample annotated student essay.
  • A comprehensive headnote accompanies each selection to give students a background from which to consider the playwright and the play.
  • Three appendices--a glossary of dramatic terms, a film adaptations bibliography, and a general bibliography that serves as a starting point for further research--support students.
