The Compact Bedford Introduction to Drama presents a well-balanced selection of plays, commentaries, and casebooks in a concise, affordable format. Its 29 chronologically arranged plays represent every major period from classic times to the present. With in-depth treatment of William Shakespeare, a strong representation of plays by women and American multicultural plays, and an exciting contemporary section loaded with prize winners, The Compact Bedford Introduction to Drama has the plays you want to teach and features designed to help students think critically about all aspects of a play as a work of literature and as a performance.

Giving students a rich understanding of the plays and the contexts from which they emerge, the anthology offers 33 commentaries, two casebooks, the most extensive collection of theater photographs available in a text of this kind, coverage of writing about drama, and a robust companion web site with help for students and instructors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Books still rule when you like to take notes in them! Dec 8 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book required for a class. Tried the online version but having the hard copy is SO much easier to use (and make notes) in. Material laid out clearly and easy reference.
3.0 out of 5 stars Served its purpose Aug. 6 2013

Got this book for a class. It's an alright book, certainly in depth in what it covers. It may just be that my class didn't cover those sections, but I wish there was more of a look into theater and performance outside of primarily western and (of course) Greek and Roman drama.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was required for a theater class I had to take for a fine arts credit in college. Don't have much to say about it other than that it was the book I needed. It contains the information needed to do well.
