Unsurpassed as an introduction to the ideas of the modern and the modernistic theatre. To understand their diversity and many currents we must go back to Yeats and Zola, to Ibsen, Shaw, and Strindberg. Here in the words of the playwrights are the clearly expressed principles of naturalism, realism, symbolism, poetic drama, and expressionism.
