August Wilsonby Harold Bloom
August Wilson's group of 10 plays, often referred to as the Pittsburgh Cycle or the Century Cycle, established his reputation as one of the nation's most important, prolific, and honored playwrights. A two-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Wilson's vibrant and layered works, including Fences, Two Trains Running, and The Piano Lesson, speak not only to the African-American experience but to the social changes that gripped the United States in the twentieth century. This collection of critical essays features notes on the contributors, a chronology, a bibliography, and an introductory essay by esteemed literary scholar Harold Bloom.
