Short Desription

Modern British and Irish dramatic works are widely enjoyed by general readers and high school students. But because they are rooted in literary Modernism and generally reflect particular historical and cultural concerns, they can also be difficult for students to understand. This volume concisely and conveniently introduces 10 masterpieces of British and Irish drama in an accessible manner. The book begins with an introductory essay on the historical context of early Modernism, the nature of theater at the beginning of the 20th century, and the trends that have shaped modern Irish and British drama. Each of the chapters that follow is devoted to a particular play. These include:

  • The Playboy of the Western World
  • Saint Joan
  • Juno and the Paycock
  • Private Lives
  • Waiting for Godot
  • Look Back in Anger
  • The Birthday Party
  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
  • Translations
  • And Top Girls. Each chapter provides a brief biography, a plot summary, a discussion of major themes and characters, an overview of the play's historical background, an analysis of the play's dramatic style, a survey of the play's critical reception, and suggestions for further reading.
