It is impressive, then, that Theater of the Avant-Garde manages to cast a proper spotlight on more than a dozen lesser-known playwrights while charting the influence on ideological successors from Pinter to Albee. Lovers of groundbreaking drama will devour the book as Eric Clapton fans would a new CD of Robert Johnson playing the blues. Professors Bert Cardullo (U. of Michigan) and Robert Knopf (Connecticut College) feature many playwrights rarely published in English alongside a few better-known ones like August Strindberg and Maurice Maeterlinck. In a provocative general introduction to the book, Bert Cardullo traces the history of the avant-garde tradition and argues for a revisionist history of modern drama that would acknowledge the innovative contributions of the avant-garde.

Bert Cardullo, Robert Knopf.

An essential volume for theater artists and students alike, this anthology includes the full texts of sixteen important examples of avant-garde drama from the most daring and influential artistic movements of the first half of the twentieth century, including Symbolism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, and Surrealism. Each play is accompanied by a bio-critical introduction by the editor, and a critical essay, frequently written by the playwright, which elaborates on the play’s dramatic and aesthetic concerns. A new introduction by Robert Knopf and Julia Listengarten contextualizes the plays in light of recent critical developments in avant-garde studies. By examining the groundbreaking theatrical experiments of Jarry, Maeterlinck, Strindberg, Artaud, and others, the book foregrounds the avant-garde’s enduring influence on the development of modern theater.
