HASH(0xa6e857a4) out of 5 stars Great Textbook Sept. 18 2011
By Nikolas Churik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This textbook contains some of the finest plays in the Western canon. The background notes and the analyses allow the reader to gain a deeper understanding of the play.

HASH(0xa692f0d8) out of 5 stars Has everything! April 23 2014
By Andrew Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First things first, this book is MASSIVE and it weighs a ton.

Why?

Because it is FULL of almost every classical play you could think of, from Greek theater all the way to 19th Century American theatre.

A must have for acting students and theater enthusiasts.
HASH(0xa667bd8c) out of 5 stars Good selection Feb. 12 2013
By Susie Mathews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Bedford Intro to Drama has a nice selection of plays, is reasonably priced and isn't too flashy. While the used copy I received isn't in perfect shape, it hasn't been worn too much. My only complaints are that the print is small and the book wasn't available as in digital format. I find digital easier to read because I can change the font size and the book weighs less.
HASH(0xa6842258) out of 5 stars Great Book! March 4 2013
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although somewhat impractical, at times. This book is great because you can get a bunch of classic plays for a lot cheaper than the cost of buying them all separately. Also, there is an introduction on the play, playwright, time period, etc. before every play.
HASH(0xa69a166c) out of 5 stars Wonderful stories and plays are included in this clunky textbook May 20 2010
By R. Schumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Negative: The largest textbook I've ever seen and hard to carry around or keep it propped open.

Positives: Has some of the greatest stories and plays of all time within it.
