A nice alternative to lengthier and more expense anthologies, Drama: A Pocket Anthology  is the perfect choice for professors who want to see several books in an Introduction to Drama course.  Chronologically organized, changes to the new edition include:

 

  • Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning comedy The God of Carnage produced on Broadway with a cast including James Gandolfini and Jeff Daniels, reflects the robust strength of today’s Broadway and of contemporary comedy.
  • Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night  brings a classic comedy to this collection for the first time.
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    From the Back Cover:

    Compact yet complete—and always at a reasonable price!

    For more than 60 years, instructors and their students have looked to our series for state-of-the-art scholarship, accessibility, and fair prices.

    We’ve created this series with ease of use in mind—the books are conveniently portable and highly readable, with engaging typefaces and interior designs. Concise yet thorough in their coverage of the basics, these titles are ideal for use either by themselves or in combination with other books.


    The ideal alternative to longer anthologies, this brief, affordable, and diverse collection of widely taught and influential plays provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the study of drama.  This chronologically organized anthology includes playwrights from classical Greece to contemporary Broadway, reflecting the work of the genre’s most distinguished playwrights.

     

    Gwynn’s Drama is a terrific and affordable collection of plays...I recommend to students that they keep [this volume] after the class is over to read for pleasure and to use for reference.


    Laura Early, University of Louisville

     


    The plays in [this] text are a perfect spring board for everything that needs to be covered in the class. It is a text that gets straight to the point of theatre. I appreciate this fact and the fact that it is actually affordable. The students like that.


    Elizabeth M. Sloan, Northeast State Community College

     

     

    In addition to offering a strong selection of plays, Gwynn...introduces students, in fluent prose, not only to key traditions in drama but also to the working vocabulary they’ll need for the course.


    Randy Hendricks, University of West Georgia
