This collection defines modern drama. From Ibsen's realistic masterpiece The Wild Duck, to Pirandello's brilliant and revolutionary Six Characters in Search of an Author, to Eugene O'Neill's pitch-perfect character study Long Day's Journey Into Night, this collection is the epitome of modern dramatic literature in all its variations. Even the criticism for each play is brilliant. A definite recommendation for serious readers who haven't read any of these, but want to.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this as a supplement to a two-semester course I am teaching on modern European literature. My professional background is in French, so I have not yet read most of the plays, but from going through them, I feel that it will enhance my course. The annotations seem particularly useful.
