KIRKUS REVIEW

An interesting and enlightening approach to this art makes sure that it is understood that playwrights are born not made and that their particular talent can be guided and broadened through teaching and education in the tools and techniques of the profession. Chapters on material, characters, conflict, unity, action, suspense, structure, etc., are amplified by appendices of a sample of manuscript type style, bibliography and an index. Designed for the beginning playwright, the critic-producer author offers intelligent analysis and criticism and helpful guide-posts for the apprentice. An excellent addition for classroom and study groups.
