Modern Drama By Women 1880s-1930s: An International Anthology


A groundbreaking anthology that will incite a major reappraisal of the role of women playwrights in the creation of modern drama, Modern Drama by Women 1880s-1930s offers English-language readers and performers a first-ever sampling of once-prominent plays by women from around the world. Featured are twelve plays by women from the Americas, Europe, and Asia, spanning a national and stylistic range from Swedish realism to Russian symbolism. Six of these plays are appearing in their first English-language translation. Playwrights and plays include: * Anne-Charlotte Leffler Edgren, True Women, (Sweden) * Amelia Pincherle Rosselli, Her Soul, (Italy) * Elsa Bernstein, Maria Arndt, (Germany) * Elizabeth Robins, Votes for Women, (Britain) * Marie Leneru, Woman Triumphant, (France) * Alfonsina Storni, Master of the World, (Argentina) * Hella Wuolijoki, Hulda Juurakko, (Finland) * Hasegawa Shigure, Wayward Traces, (Japan) * Rachilde, Crystal Spider, (France) * Zinaida Gippius, Sacred Blood, (Russia) * Djuna Barnes, The Dove, (USA) * Marita Bonner, The Purple Flower, (USA)

These playwrights represent the New Woman -- herself, her relationships, her crises -- in all of the styles and genres available to the modern dramatist. Unprecedented in diversity and scope, Modern Drama by Women is a collection which no scholar, student, or lover of modern drama can afford to miss.
