Dramatists and Drama by Harold Bloom

Venerable literary critic Bloom (humanities, Yale U.) surveys drama in ancient Greece and in the English language since the Renaissance, noting that drama is a peculiar form of literature because it is contaminated by performance. He covers plays by the four major Athenians, and nearly a third of the volume is devoted to Shakespeare. He also includes some plays that are not considered major but that he thinks provide lessons about the genre. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
