COMMON SENSE ABOUT DRAMA

A rather special sort of book, for those interested in the philosophy of the theatre, rather than in the routine type of analysis of drama, production, acting. Strong approaches the subject with the briefest of backward glances at the history of the peaks of drama -- the Greek theatre and the Shakespearian theatre, and then discusses reality on the stage, the psychology of drama, its closeness to man's dream life, the limitations of time and space and the way in which the dramatist meets them, etc. A book for the thoughtful critic and student.
