The aim of this volume is to examine nascent movements, genre shifts, developing authors/playwrights and controversial themes as they emerged in both drama and theatre. The editors have focused on the essence of creative nexus of London from the end of the nineteenth century up to the beginning of the Great War (1914). The resultant study discusses Gordon Craig and production design, Wilde, Shaw, Synge, Pinero, Strindberg,Harley Granville Barker, Jones, Archer, Ford Madox Ford, D.H.Lawrence, Galsworthy, Sims, women playwrights, popular theatre among other topics.
The work complements J.L.Styan’s 3 volume Modern Drama in Theory and Practice and is more focused on late 19th/early 20th c transitions and dramatic breakthroughs than Modern British Drama of Christopher Innes.
