Anne Paolucci supplies a critical and appreciative analysis of Edward Albee, one of the leading American playwrights of the twentieth century. Along the way, she uses her familiarity with Dante and Pirandello to explore Albee's combination of humor and dark brooding, his religious transparencies, use of symbolism, the claustrophobic intensity of his emotional space, and his no-exit situations.
