Product Description

Review

?After a succinct overview, Abbotson presents 10 masterpieces by some of America's best-known playwrights, "paying some small tribute to gender and ethnicity." From Thorton Wilder's Our Town to August Wilson's The Piano Lesson, each play is introduced with a short biography of the playwright and is followed by several pages of information on each: plot summary, character development, themes, historical background, literary style and devices, place of the work in the playwrights' oeuvre and 20th-century drama, critical reception, and suggested readings....[c]lear and concise analyses of these plays for libraries still needing such a reference source.?-School Library Journal
