Designed as a main text-anthology for the introductory drama course. Applauded by reviewers for its generous number of selections, the sixth edition offers true "masterpieces" of drama. This text contains 30 plays ranging from Aeschylus to Churchill, brief introductions and annotations that do not detract from the student's appreciation of the text.


An anthology of drama from Aeschylus to Caryl Churchill which includes 31 plays. The authors provide critical introductions to each play. In addition, there is thorough footnoting of references, allusions, and unusual vocabulary. New to this edition are women playwrights. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
