A History Of Modern Drama Volume II 1960--2000

Exploring a remarkable breadth of topics and analytical approaches, A History of Modem Drama: Volume II offers an essential resource about the dramatic works, authors, and transitional events and movements that shaped world drama from 1960 to the dawn of the new millennium.

The volume provides global coverage of both English and non-English dramas -- including works from Africa, Asia. South America, and the Middle East -- and examines the influence of a wide range of writers, from mainstream icons such as Harold Pinter and Edward Albee, to more unorthodox works by authors such as Peter Weiss and Sarah Kane. It explores essential issues of theatricality and dramaturgy, while drawing from the fields of art. literature, society, politics, culture, and philosophy to trace the methodologies of world drama during the modem era.

This highly anticipated second volume completes a comprehensive two-part work examining modem world drama. It combines wide ranging topics with original theories, international perspective, and philosophical and cultural context, and, alongside Volume I, offers readers complete coverage of a full century in the evolution of global dramatic literature.
