The most comprehensive and distinctive collection of its kind, The Norton Anthology of Drama offers sixtyfive major plays--including three twentieth-century plays not available in any other drama anthology--the most carefully prepared introductions, annotations, and play texts, and a convenient two-volume, one-column format for ease of reading and carrying. Less expensive than rival anthologies, The Norton Anthology of Drama is also the best value--a book that students will keep long after the class is over.
