Routledge Modern and Contemporary Dramatists is a new series of innovative and exciting critical introductions to the work of internationally pioneering playwrights. The series includes recent and well-established playwrights and offers primary materials on contemporary dramatists who are under-represented in secondary criticism. Each volume provides detailed cultural, historical and political material, examines selected plays in production, and theorises the playwright's artistic agenda and working methods, as well as their contribution to the development of playwriting and theatre.
Volumes currently available in the series are:
J. B. Priestley by Maggie B. Gale
Federico García Lorca by Maria M. Delgado
Susan Glaspell and Sophie Treadwell by Jerry Dickey and Barbara Oziebo
