İbrahim the Mad and Other Plays
Talât Sait Halman, Jayne L. Warner
Syracuse University Press, 2008 - Drama - 479 pages
Since the middle of the twentieth century, Turkish playwriting has been notable for its verve and versatility. This two-volume anthology is the first major collection of modern Turkish plays in English translation-a selection encompassing everything from ancient Anatolian mythology and Ottoman history to contemporary social issues, family dramas, and ribald comedy from Turkey's cities and rural areas. It also includes several plays set outside Turkey.
