Only drawback is this thing is the size of a phone book.
If you have to pick this book up for a class do not sell afterwards, chances are you will be able to use in another.
I agree with one of the other reviewers that the plays of the final half of the 20th century seem to be selected for political correctness. I'll probably skip those, but given that they only take up only about 150 pages of a total of over 1100 pages, I'm more then happy with the book as a whole.
So: ideal reading for the casual reader. If you can find a cheap version, like I did (really, only four euros for a book that's apparently worth a whole lot more? How could I NOT buy this one?), be sure to buy it.
The book covers the great ages of drama, the genres of drama and elements of drama. The great ages of drama include: Greek drama, Roman drama, Medieval drama, Renaissance drama, late seventeenth & eighteenth century drama, nineteenth century drama through the turn of the century, drama in the early and mid-twentieth century and contemporary drama.
