KIRKUS REVIEW

The editor presents an act by act synopsis of 133 plays by 63 playwrights, ranging from the famous to those only now achieving an international reputation. They include Brecht, O'Neill; Shaw, Cocteau, Genet, Ionesco, Sartre; Albee, Williams, Wilder, Miller, Odets; Claudel, Hauptmann, Kaiser, Wedekind; Ghelderode, Betti, Montherlant. While objective, the summaries also hint of interpretation in their exegesis.
