A Student Handbook to the Plays of Arthur Miller : All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View From the Bridge, Broken Glass by Susan C. W Abbotson( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Student Handbook to the Plays of Arthur Miller provides the essential guide to Miller's most studied and revived dramas. Authored by a team of leading scholars, it offers students a clear analysis and detailed commentary on five of Miller's plays: All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge and Broken Glass. A consistent framework of analysis ensures that whether readers want a summary of the play, a commentary on the themes or characters, or a discussion of the work in performance, they can readily find what they need to develop their understanding and aid their appreciation of Miller's artistry. A chronology of Miller's life and work helps to situate his oeuvre in context and the introduction reinforces this by providing a clear overview of his writing, its recurrent themes and how these are intertwined with his life and times. For each play the author provides a summary of the plot, followed by commentary on the context, themes, characters, structure and language, and the play in production - both on stage and screen adaptations; there are questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases in the text. The wealth of authoritative and clear commentary on each play, together with further questions that encourage comparison across Miller's work and related plays by other leading writers, ensures that this is the clearest and fullest guide to Miller's greatest plays

Vietnam War drama 1966-2008: American theatrical responses to the war and its aftermath by Erin Toth Caron( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Vietnam War drama in the United States spans four decades of American history, from the first theatrical discussion of the Vietnam War in 1966 with Megan Terry's Viet Rock to a provocative examination of the war's legacy in American culture with Steven Dietz's Last of the Boys (2004). However, critical studies of Vietnam War drama are few, and too often those that do exist examine Vietnam War plays without sufficient consideration of their historical moment. The historicity of the plays tends to be overshadowed in academic studies by structural or thematic interrogations, resulting in the grouping together for analysis of plays that actually respond to very different cultural contexts. Subsequently, comparisons are made among plays with similar content or structure, for example, but with decidedly dissimilar agendas and tactics, resulting in a hierarchy of artistic achievement and the marginalization of plays that have much to contribute both to America's theatrical history and to a better understanding of the ways American society at large has grappled with the Vietnam War and its aftermath
