Description: KEY BENEFIT: Quality selections at an affordable price. Chronologically organized and including playwrights from classical Greece to contemporary Broadway, the featured selections reflect the work of the genre9;s most distinguished playwrights. An introduction to the genre discusses the origins of drama, the literary elements, and film adaptations of plays. New selections include a one-act play by Chicana playwright Milcha Sanchez-Scott reflecting the struggle of a Cuban-American to find her way in American mainstream culture. A brief one-act by Arlene Hutton has the makings of a feminist classic, according to one reviewer. New selections from Sophocles, Ibsen, and August Wilson offer echoes of todayrsquo;s politics (Antigone),an adaptation by Arthur Miller(An Enemy of the People),and a classic from one of Americarsquo;s most admired playwrights(The Piano Lesson). For anyone interested in an affordable introduction to drama anthology with quality selections.
