The Ancient British Drama Vol 1 Of 3 Classic Reprint from the Author: Robert Dodsley. Excerpt from The Ancient British Drama, Vol. 1 of 3 Tan present Publication is intended to form, with The British Branta, and Shakspeare, a complete and uniform Collection, in Ten Voiumes, of the best English Plays. The distinction of Ancientand Modem will be {found to consist chiefly in reference to their having lost or retained pass-anion 'of the Stage. Hamlet and Macbeth, for example, cannot, in this sense, he termed ancient Plays, although prior in date to many, or indeed tomcat of those which will be found in the following Volumes. It is unnecessary to inform the lovers of the Drama, that although the later and 'more fashionable department of the Collection will be found most useful to the frequenters of the Theatre, yet that which we are now prefacing win be the most acceptable to the' admirers of poetry. From the latter end of the sixteenth century to the breaking out of the civil war, the best Poets of England were engaged in'dramatic composition; and dbayton and spencer are the only authors of eminent reputation, who have not written for the Stage.

Modern British Drama On Screen from the Author: R. Barton Palmer. This collection of essays offers the first comprehensive treatment of British and American films adapted from modern British plays.

With each chapter written by an expert in the field, Modern British Drama on Screen focuses on key playwrights of the period including George Bernard Shaw, Somerset Maugham, Terence Rattigan, Noel Coward and John Osborne and the most significant British drama of the past century from Pygmalion to The Madness of George III.
