  • DESCRIPTION

    This book is written for those beginning a study of American literature as part of an advanced course in English, or for anyone interested in American drama in the 20th century. It aims to encourage readers to explore beyond the few well-known playwrights, and to place the plays as they are read within the context of the development of American society during the 20th century.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • Each title includes a wide-ranging yet carefully levelled introductory discussion of a literary period, genre or theme, to provide students with an excellent introduction to an area of literature.

    • Helps students to address the new assessment objective 4 ('demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received') - worth up to 35% of the A level qualification under new guidelines.

    • Discussion questions and end-of-section tasks offer an invaluable resource for self study as well as helpful exam preparation.

    • A mini-anthology of texts and extracts saves teachers time searching for appropriate 'wider reading' texts.

  • CONTENTS
    • Introduction
    • 1. A survey of 20th century American dramatists
    • 2. Approaching the texts
    • 3. Play extracts
    • 4. Critical approaches to 20th century American drama
    • 5. How to write about 20th century American drama
    • 6. Reading list and other resources.
