Abstract:

Edward Albee, perhaps best known for his ... 1960s drama Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, is one of America's greatest living playwrights. Now in his seventies, he is still writing challenging, award-winning dramas. This collection of new essays on Albee, which includes contributions from ... commentators on Albee's work, brings ... critical insights to bear by exploring the full scope of the playwright's career, from his 1959 breakthrough with The Zoo Story to his most recent Broadway success, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? (2002). The contributors include scholars of both theatre and English literature, and the essays thus consider the plays both as literary texts and as performed drama. The collection considers a number of Albee's lesser-known and neglected works, provides [an] introduction and overview, and includes an ... interview with Mr Albee, on topics spanning his whole career.-http://www.loc.gov/catdir.
