User Review  - sholt2001 - LibraryThing

A nice collection of plays from a variety of time periods and cultures. Each has a brief introduction on background and themes. Not nearly as comprehensive as some collections, say, the Wadsworth, but also much more brief and easy to digest. Read full review
