Summary
  • "Achieves what heretofore seemed unachievable, making sense for the non-Irish reader of the convolutions and contradictions of Irish drama that mirror the history and life of the country."ùChristopher Fitz-Simon, author of The Irish Theatre
  • "This is a wonderful read and a wonderful ride." Patrick Sutton, director, The Gaiety School of Acting, The National Theatre School of Ireland
  • "Modern Irish Drama provides essential information on the newest and most innovative dramatists in Ireland and it does so with new critical insight."ùJohn P. Harrington, author of The Life of the Neighborhood Playhouse on Grand Street
  • "The book is authoritative, lucid, and accessible ... It is indispensable for students and a valuable addition to the libraries of those already familiar with Ireland and its theatre."ùFergal Tobin, publishing director, Gill & Macmillan Ltd
  • Modern Irish Drama: W.B. Yeats to Marina Carr presents a thorough introduction to the recent history of one of the greatest dramatic and theatrical traditions in Western culture. Originally published in 1988, this updated edition provides extensive new material, charting the path of modern and contemporary Irish drama from its roots in the Celtic Revival to its flowering in world theater. The lives and careers of more than fifty modern Irish playwrights are discussed along with summaries of their major plays and recommendations for further reading. --Book Jacket
