The Skin of Our Teeth

Editura: Harper Perennial

Anul aparitiei: 2003

A timeless statement about human foibles . . . and human endurance, this beautiful new edition features Wilder's unpublished production notes, diary entries, and other illuminating documentary material, all of which is included in a new Afterword by Tappan Wilder. Time magazine called "The Skin of Our Teeth" "a sort of "Hellzapoppin'" with brains," as it broke from established theatrical conventions and walked off with the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama. Combining farce, burlesque, and satire (among other styles), Thornton Wilder departs from his studied use of nostalgia and sentiment in "Our Town" to have an Eternal Family narrowly escape one disaster after another, from ancient times to the present. Meet George and Maggie Antrobus (married only 5,000 years); their two children, Gladys and Henry (perfect in "every" way!); and their maid, Sabina (the ageless vamp) as they overcome ice, flood, and war -- by the skin of their teeth.

The Collected Plays of Paul Rudnick

Editura: It Books

Anul aparitiei: 2010

"Paul Rudnick is a champion of truth (and love and great wicked humor) whom we ignore at our peril." --David Sedaris, author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day , and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk This definitive collection of Paul Rudnick's plays presents the pinnacle of theatrical hilarity from one of America's great humorists. Popular for his wickedly funny novels, including I'll Take It and Social Disease , comic screenplays like In & Out and Addams Family Values , and the Augusten Burroughs-like memoir I Shudder , Rudnick remains best known for his cerebral but side-splitting theatrical writing. With echoes of Neil Simon, Thornton Wilder, and Noel Coward, Rudnick plays like I Hate Hamlet , Jeffrey , and The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told are outstanding fixtures of America's comedic canon.

Anul aparitiei: 1977

Anton Chekhov remarked toward the close of his life that people would stop reading him a year after his death. But his literary stature and popularity have grown steadily with the years, and he is accounted the single most important influence on the development of the modern short story. Edited and with an introduction by Avrahm Yarmolinsky, The Portable Chekhov presents twenty-eight of Chekhov's best stories, chosen as particularly representative of his many-sided portrayal of the human comedy--including -The Kiss, - -The Darling, - and -In the Ravine---as well as two complete plays; The Boor , an example of Chekhov's earlier dramatic work, and The Cherry Orchard, his last and finest play. In addition, this volume includes a selection of letters, candidly revealing of Chekhov's impassioned convictions on life and art, his high aspirations, his marriage, and his omnipresent compassion.

Arthur Miller

The Crucible

Editura: Penguin Books

Anul aparitiei: 1996

A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community, presented here with enlightening criticism and commentary -I believe that the reader will discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history, - Arthur Miller wrote in an introduction to The Crucible, his classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts. Based on historical people and real events, Miller's drama is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town's most basic fears and suspicions; and when a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, self-righteous church leaders and townspeople insist that Elizabeth be brought to trial. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially sanctioned violence. Written in 1953, The Crucible is a mirror Miller uses to reflect the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy's -witch-hunts- in the United States. Within the text itself, Miller ...

Death of a Salesman

Editura: Penguin Books

Anul aparitiei: 1996

The Pulitzer Prize-winning tragedy of a salesman's deferred American dream, presented here with enlightening commentary and criticism Willy Loman, the protagonist of Death of a Salesman, has spent his life following the American way, living out his belief in salesmanship as a way to reinvent himself. But somehow the riches and respect he covets have eluded him. At age 63, he searches for the moment his life took a wrong turn, the moment of betrayal that undermined his relationship with his wife and destroyed his relationship with Biff, the son in whom he invested his faith. Willy lives in a fragile world of elaborate excuses and daydreams, conflating past and present in a desperate attempt to make sense of himself and of a world that once promised so much. Since it was first performed in 1949, Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about the tragic shortcomings of an American dreamer has been recognized as a milestone of the theater. This Viking Critical Library edition of Death of a Salesman contains the complete text of the play, typescript facsimiles, and extensive critical and contextual material including: Conflicting reviews about its opening night by Robert Garland, ...
