Dictionary of Literary Biography: Twentieth-Century American Cultural Theoristsby Paul Hansom
Pub. Date: 09/17/2001
Publisher: Gale Group
The period covered by this dictionary of literary biography embraces the work of writers working in theatrical traditions ranging from the classic well-made play to the most radical avant-garde pieces. Entries list play productions, books, and produced scripts by British and Irish dramatists, briefly sketch each dramatist's education and career, and describe in detail his or her major productions. Entries are arranged alphabetically to allow a mixture of the old and the new. Many of the entries were written in collaboration with their subjects or the subject's family members. Includes b&w photos of dramatists, playbills, and manuscripts.
