American Plays of the New Woman

Overview

These six plays present varying accounts of the battle of the sexes in the early years of the 20th century. The subjects include the double standard, the advent of the New Woman and turn-of-the-century feminism, and the clash between a woman's career and conventional marriage. Delightful...these plays...provide wonderful insights into the collective mentality of the period. ?Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Delightful...wonderful insights into the collective mentality of the liberation period.
Library Journal
This delightful collection of six plays written from 1906 to 1917 is gathered around the theme of women's liberation and rights. Four of the six, William Vaughn Moody's The Great Divide, Rachel Crother's A Man's World, Augustus Thomas's As a Man Thinks, and Jesse Lynch Williams's Why Marry?, were commercial theatrical products, while Alice Gerstenberg's Overtones and Susan Glaspell's The Outside were considered experimental and premiered in regional or little theaters. Newlin (American literature, Univ. of North Carolina, Wilmington) has edited The Collected Plays of Theodore Dreiser and Selected Letters of Hamlin Garland. While it is unlikely that the majority of these plays would be produced today, they provide wonderful insights into the collective mentality of the period. Recommended for women's studies as well as theater collections.--J. Sara Paulk, Coastal Plain Regional Lib., Tifton, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
