Product Description

Following publication of the first two acclaimed volumes of this series, The Collected Plays of Edward Albee: 1978- 2003 is finally available in paperback. This integral volume brings readers up-to-date with the works of a true American master playwright. This volume contains some of Albee s most iconoclastic and influential plays, including his adaptation of Nabokov s masterpiece Lolita; The Man Who Had Three Arms, an indictment of the abuse of critical power; three shorter plays, Finding the Sun, Marriage Play, and Fragments, all hailed as triumphs of innovative dramaturgy; Occupant, a touching homage to, and a striking portrait of, Albee s longtime friend, the sculptor Louise Nevelson; as well as The Play About the Baby, Knock! Knock! Who s There! , and The Goat, or Who is Sylvia , a trilogy of plays that brought Albee the kind of critical and popular acclaim he enjoyed early in his career after years of neglect by the theater establishment.

Edward Albee, born in 1928, was awarded the Gold Medal in drama from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters in 1980, and in 1996 he received both the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts.
