Types of Drama, 8/e offers a full range of plays from ancient Greece to the present. Like the earlier editions, this collection gives strong representation of such familiar authors as the Greek dramatists, Shakespeare, Ibsen, and O'Neill as well as to contemporary classic authors such as Miller, Williams and Churchill. New to the eighth edition are twenty-eight works including a commedia dell'arte scenario, a Noh play, an opera by Gertrude Stein, a farce by Dario Fo, Elizabeth Robins's neglected Votes for Women, and Suzan-Lori-Parks's newest play, In the Blood.
