about this item

Scholars of literature and theater consider whether or not the label of absurd placed upon American playwright Albee's (1928-2016) plays is an apt way to understand his works, and seek to work past the label to read Albee as an individual playwright. Among their topics are an absurdity of mimesis: a history of absurdist criticism related to plays of Edward Albee, some notes toward a definition of Albee as postmodern, possible absurd violence in Albee and Adrienne Kennedy, and who's afraid of the Catholic Church: pre-Vatican II Roman Catholicism in two of his early plays. The volume closes with an interview of director and playwright Emily Mann on working with Albee. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
