About the Author

Founded in 1947, Hal Leonard Corporation has become the worlds largest print music publisher, representing some of the greatest songwriters and artists of all time. We are proud to publish titles of interest to all musicians as well as music lovers, from songbooks and instructional titles to artist biographies and instrument price guides to books about the music industry and all the performing arts.

Jan Kott, (1914 2001) was a Polish American theater critic and an expert on Shakespeare whose theories influenced some of the most innovative of modern theater directors. Born in Warsaw, he studied at the universities of Warsaw, Paris, and Lodz. Kott returned to Poland shortly before World War II and was drafted into the Polish army. Later he took part in the underground resistance against the Nazi occupation. After teaching Polish literary history at the University of Warsaw and being a visiting professor at Yale, Kott lost his Warsaw post on political grounds. He was granted asylum in the United States in 1969, by which time he had become known in Europe for his writings about Shakespeare. He taught courses in drama, English, and literature at the State University of New York at Stony Brook from 1969 to 1983, when he retired.

Format: Paperback
Not as thoroughly satisfying as Gerould's Madman And The Nun And Other Plays By Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, this books sandwiches the playwright's crowning achievement (The Water Hen) between his two most accessible works (Madman And The Nun and Crazy Locomotive). Nothing really new here, but since other English editions of Poland's greatest 20th century playwright are currently out of print, this slender volume should be considered indespensible. I just wish the publishers saw fit to include more. As for Gerould's translations, they are quite splendid, of course, as well they should be since they have occupied the greater part of this dramaturgical scholar's life.
