About the Author:

Richard Gilman is professor emeritus of playwriting and dramatic literature at Yale University's School of Drama. He has been drama critic for Newsweek, Commonweal, and The Nation and was a contributing editor of Partisan Review for many years. He is also the author of Chekhov's Plays: An Opening into Eternity (ISBN 0 300 07256 2, pb. #10.95), also published by Yale University Press.

Review:

"The best single study of the astonishing transformations dramatic art has undergone in the last century or so." Thomas R. Edwards, New York Times Book Review "In its field this is one of the choice books of the century. It moves toward the deepest sources of some great plays, so it deepens their effect on us." Stanley Kauffmann "The Making of Modern Drama has no rivals. Richard Gilman's account of his fascinating subject is written with love, measure, and authority." Susan Sontag "Gilman's book on the genesis and development of contemporary drama is acute, beautifully accomplished, and, I think, important." Donald Barthelme
