The third volume of this three-volume collection contains the ten plays written by Albee during his later years as a playwright, from 1978 through 2003.
Included are some of Albee s most iconoclastic and influential plays, including his adaptation of Nabokov's masterpieceLolita;The Man Who Had Three Arms, an indictment of the abuse of critical power; three shorter plays,Finding the Sun,Marriage Play, andFragments, all hailed as triumphs of innovative dramaturgy;Occupant, a touching homage to, and a striking portrait of, Albee's longtime friend, the sculptor Louise Nevelson; as well asThe Play About the Baby,Knock! Knock! Who s There!, andThe Goat, or Who is Sylvia, a trilogy of plays that brought Albee the kind of critical and popular acclaim he enjoyed early in his career after years of neglect by the theater establishment.
