Drama from Ibsen to Brecht / Raymond Williams

published by Penguin Books

This book is a fully revised and expanded successor to Drama from ibsen to Eliot. It is an uncompromising reappraisal of Europe’s foremost dramatists, and the author aims to provide not so much a history of the drama between the years 1850 and 1960 as a critical account and a revaluation.

‘What I have defined’, he writes, ‘is what I believe to be the meaning of the dramatic tradition in the modern theatre: a record of difficulty and trouble; but still primarily, from that first major generation to its many successors, from ibsen to Brecht’ - and it might be added, from Pirandello to Pinter -‘one of the great periods of dramatic history.’

Raymond Williams' study is authoritative and important, both for its criticai conclusions and for the way in which it succeeds in establishing an objective standard by which to judge the theatre today.

'His judgements are fresh and unequivocal, he never loses sight of his critical bearings ... a book of real substance’ - The Times Literary Supplement

The cover shows a detail from a stage set by Remygius Geyling for 'Peer Gynt’. (Snark Archives)
