9781330176504: The British and American, Drama of to-Day, Outlines for Their Study (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The British and American, Drama of to-Day, Outlines for Their Study

Somerset Maugham are not truly representative the first three are rather exceptional than typical the last two are typical, but their work is already represented by that of such men as Pinero, Jones, and Davies. It has been my aim only to include typical plays of typical dramatists, thereby afford ing the student a general view of the dramatic movement in English-speaking countries since its inception something over a quarter of a century ago.

The recent dramatic movement in Ireland has very little to do with that in England, but my in elusion of outlines on Irish plays under the gen eral title of British may be excused as a mat ter of expediency and geography British being understood-to embrace the British Isles.

The mention of first American performances of English plays is, I hope, an aid, but I am fully aware of the deficiency in this branch of my work. There are no complete and authentic records con taining the necessary information.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 340 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from The British and American, Drama of to-Day, Outlines for Their StudyThe British and American Drama of To-day aims to complete the series of suggestive study outlines of representative modern plays begun in The Continental Drama of To-day. The same general form and method have been followed as were employed in the first volume, with the exception of two or three slight modifications. First, owing either to the persistent refusal of certain dramatists to publish their plays, because of practical considerations or because they have no wish to make known their works through the medium of the printed page, dramatists like Eugene Walter, David Belasco, and George M. Cohan are but briefly referred to. In rarer instances, that of Sir James Barrie for example, the best and most typical plays arc either not printed or, if such was the case, in editions de luxe, the price of which is prohibitive. The selection of plays has been a rather difficult task. It has, of course, been impossible to consider all plays of importance or to include the best of each dramatist. Some authors have not even been touched upon. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
