The Theater of Arthur Adamov, Paperback / softback Book


First recognized with the likes of Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco as a defining figure at the forefront of the ""theater of the absurd,"" French playwright Adam Adamov had a fairly prolific career, writing twenty plays between 1947 and his death in 1970.

Now, though now he has fallen somewhat into obscurity.

John J. McMann provides a study of Adamov's work which traces the playwright's artistic development and explores his role in defining the avant-garde and political theaters of France.
