Editorial Reviews

Review

«Informed by contemporary theory, philosophy, and sociology, Thaddeus Wakefield examines how changes in American society and culture have impacted family life and how American playwrights have been drawn to the family as the subject of their more powerful works. In ‘The Family in Twentieth-Century American Drama’, Wakefield examines the full range of family dramas, including nontraditional families, written by the most important authors of the century, including O’Neill, Williams, Miller, Albee, Hellman, Hansberry, Crowley, and August Wilson. His original readings are exciting and rich in their implications for the future of the American family in the twenty-first century.» (Emory Elliott, University of California, Riverside; General Editor, ‘The Columbia Literary History of the United States’)
