New England Theatre Journal

Donald Keene´s English translation of Three Plays doubles the number of theatrical pieces accessible to English-speaking audiences of one of the most intriguing late-twentieth-century writers. Coinciding with the recent death of Abe, these translations afford an opportunity for westerners to view more closely the works of an author who, although better known for his novels. . . . remained throughout his career a fervent theatrical experimenter.
