Century of Innovation: A History of European and American Theatre and Drama Since 1870.
Brockett, Oscar G.; Findlay, Robert R.
This book discusses the history of European and American drama from the advent of the "modern" era (around 1870) until the early 1970s. Coverage is further restricted to persons and events most characteristic of an era or of greatest significance later. Both theatrical and dramatic practice are treated as integral parts of a whole. Some attention is also given to social and intellectual factors which have influenced theatre and drama, to dramaturgy and dramatists, to theoreticians and theatrical practitioners (directors, actors, and designers), and to audiences. A bibliography, primarily restricted to English works, and divided according to the chapters of the book, is also included. (Author/DI)
