  • American Drama 1945-2000

    By David Krasner

    Our Price: $127.95
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781405120869

    • Published: August 2006
    Krasner (theatre, Yale U.) chronologically evaluates the dominant themes of American drama in the second half of the 20th century and, to a lesser extent, explores the innovations of dramaturgical strategy pioneered by American playwrights in the period. His conceptual framework looks in turn at plays in which characters desire to belong to the mainstream (1945-1959), dramas that rebel against mainstream norms (1960-1975), plays with characters who rage (1976-1989), and plays that emphasize the body (1990-2000).
