    Not just an editor

    With this book, Eric Bentley, prolific editor of anthologies and translator of European playwrights' work, shows that he's a more-than-competent playwright in his own 'write.'The three plays contained are: 'Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been,' about Congress's witch-hunt for Hollywood commies in the 1940s-50s, with all dialogue taken from hearing transripts and contemprary sources; 'The Recantation of Galileo Galilei,' Bentley's version of the events leading to Galileo's forced recantation (written partially in response to the flaws Bentley found in Brecht's 'Galileo'); and 'From The Memoirs of Pontius Pilate,' which tells the story of Jesus from te Procurator's point of view. All worth reading, and all worth performing and watching if you get the chance.
