Summary: Known through four editions as the boldest and most distinguished introduction to drama, William Worthen's pace-setting text continues to provide exciting plays usefully situated within their historical and cultural contexts. In its fifth edition, THE WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF DRAMA broadens its scope to offer even more plays than ever before.

Benefits:

Worthen's selection ...show moreof plays now includes topical and provocative plays like Minna Canth's Anna-Liisa, Jean Genet's The Balcony, Sarah Cane's Blasted, David Hare's Stuff Happens; and classroom favorites like August Strindberg's Miss Julie, Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, Luis Valdez's Zoot Suit, and Nobel Laureate Athol Fugard's "Master Harold"...and the boys.
  • Over 70 photos and illustrations: Including the new "Reading the Material Theater" exercises in each unit, over 70 photos and illustrations throughout the book help students visualize the plays they read within their historical and cultural context.
  • NEW! The Wadsworth Anthology of Drama is the only introductory textbook to include the complete Orestia, providing students better access to Aeschylus and enabling them to better differentiate the playwrights of Classical Athens.
  • NEW! More new plays in the chapter on world theater: Louis Nowra's The Golden Age, Vaclev Havel's Temptation and Vassily Sigrev's Black Milk have been added to offer extensive choices and flexibility for exposing students to plays from other cultures and traditions.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage of modern European theater, including new works by women playwrights, Minna Canth and Sarah Kane, is now included.
  • NEW! A study of "adaptation" pairing Susan Glaspell's Trifles and "A Jury of Her Peers."
  • The most comprehensive coverage of World theater, American theater, and Modern European theater, THE WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF DRAMA continues to provide the boldest, most diverse, and most distinctive introduction to drama available.
  • The widest representation of plays by women: Including not only plays by contemporary women, Anna Deavere Smith and Suzan-Lori Parks, for example, THE WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF DRAMA also now includes Minna Canth's thriller, Anna-Liisa in the chapter on Modern Europe.
  • Distinctive features for putting drama in context: The first introduction to drama to situate plays within their geographical and historical context, THE WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF DRAMA continues to help introductory students make sense of drama in a variety of ways with these useful and engaging features: in depth discussions of literary and cultural history, "Aside" boxes in every chapter that focus on particular contexts, thorough, student-friendly introductions to every play, and biographical headnotes about every author.
  • "Reading the Material Theater" visual exercises: In every chapter, these unique visual exercises help deepen students' understanding of theater history by inviting them to consider how artifacts from the time relate to the plays in the chapter and the periods in which they were written.
