Overview

In this Readers' Guide, Terry Hodgson provides a general background to Stoppard's oeuvre, elucidating his main themes through selective quotation from the critics and from Stoppard's own illuminating interview comments. The book summarizes stage techniques and modes of critical approach, and focuses throughout on Stoppard's concern with the nature of creativity. This theme is particularly evident in important plays written in the 1990s - Arcadia, Indian Ink and The Invention of Love - key works by this seminal playwright about which there has been little comment so far.
