Modern American Drama on Screen, Hardback Book

Modern American Drama on Screen Hardback

Edited by William Robert Bray, R. Barton Palmer

Description

From its beginnings, the American film industry has profited from bringing popular and acclaimed dramatic works to the screen.

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive account, focusing on key texts, of how Hollywood has given a second and enduring life to such classics of the American theater as Long Day's Journey into Night, A Streetcar Named Desire and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Each chapter is written by a leading scholar and focuses on Broadway's most admired and popular productions.

The book is ideally suited for classroom use and offers an otherwise unavailable introduction to a subject which is of great interest to students and scholars alike.
