Synopsis

American Drama 1900-1990 by Don Shiach

Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. This book is written for those beginning a study of American literature as part of an advanced course in English, or for anyone interested in American drama in the 20th century. It aims to encourage readers to explore beyond the few well-known playwrights, and to place the plays as they are read within the context of the development of American society during the 20th century.

Reviews

'What distinguishes the series from all the others is the zest and freshness of the text. Where the emphasis in other series is on plain and straightforward language, Cambridge English Reading texts typically use very modern expressions and the dialogue is faster moving. This has an impact on the quality of the audio cassettes, which make for very enjoyable listening.'
