This anthology concentrates on the developments in dramatic theory over the last 150 years, examining its striking instability, the new concepts which have arisen in this century, and the seemingly outdated ones which have been resurrected. Including excerpts from a number of significant figures from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this book also makes available new and highly accurate translations of some of the better-known pieces from such writers as Emile Zola, Richard Wagner, and Yvan Goll. The anthology is accompanied by an extremely full bibliography of relevant works in English.
