Since the late 1970s, more than 200 biographical plays about famous artists (composers, fine artists, poets, actors etc.) were written and staged in the United Kingdom. The book analyses the range of these plays, arguing that the dramatists often place the main artist character(s) in an adverse situation, inward (e.g., mental illness) or outward (a personal enemy, or an anonymous power, such as war). Against the background of such adverse forces, the artist characters tend come across as flawed human beings. At the same time, most plays take care to provide good insights into the artists genius and their artistic integrity in the face of the adversity. The book also addresses the question why there have been so many biographical plays about famous artists over the past twenty-five years, providing answers in the context of theatre history and developments across academic disciplines and society as a whole.

This book focuses exclusively on the exciting and provocative plays produced in England in the last two decades. The primary aim of the collection is to celebrate the truly remarkable range of British drama since 1970, by examining the work of fourteen important and representative playwrights.

The book moves in a nonreductive way between literary and theological criticism to show how drama and religious thought discern the experience of evil. &"Tragic method&" refers to how tragic art functions as inquiry; &"tragic theology&" refers to how drama and theology render in thematic or symbolic form certain irreducible dimensions of evil and negativity. Bouchard defines no single tragic method or any single view of evil but searches for the distinctive interplay of tragic method of theology in each dramatist. The work opens by scrutinizing certain important interpretations of Greek tragedy. Paul Ricoeur's interpretation of &"the Wicked God and the Tragic Vision&" receives major focus, as does Sophocles, who as a tragedian dramatized the action of inquiry and interpretation. Bouchard then examines Augustine's views of evil and sin, Reinhold Niebuhr's critique of the ironies of history, and Tillich's conceptions of the demonic. By interpreting tragedy in terms of sin or the effects of sin, each theologian resists implications in his own thought pointing to a less resolvable tragic theology. And yet these theologians also contribute very creative understandings of the irreducible character of evil and tragic experience. Substantive and original readings of three playwrights are offered: Rolf Hochhuth's tragedy of vocation, The Deputy, Robert Lowell's trilogy of American historical blindness, The Old Glory, and Peter Shaffer's dreams of tragic awareness and accountability in Equus and Amadeus, revealing new permutations of the irreducibility of evil in contemporary Christian and Jewish religious thinkers who may be helpful in this task, and concludes with a description of the experience of perplexed thought, self-critical in view of tragedy's witness to irreducibility of evil.

The successor to modern drama scholarship and criticism 1966-1980, the present volume is a classified, selective list of publications for the period 1981-1990, with many additions and corrections to the previous volume. It refines and supplements the series of annual bibliographies that Charles Carpenter compiled for the journal Modern Drama from 1982 to 1993. The work is designed both as a convenient checklist of significant scholarship on all aspects of world drama since Ibsen and as a bibliographical prTcis of the discipline as it has evolved since 1980. The great majority of its 25,200 entries concern literary currents in drama since the last third of the nineteenth century and the associated playwrights, although theatre history is also well represented. Because of the heightened interest in semiotic, anthropological, feminist, and other theoretical approaches to drama during the decade of the 1980s, the 'Contemporary Theory' section has been greatly expanded. The primary organization is geographic/linguistic; the main divisions are World Drama, then American, British and Irish, Canadian, Hispanic, French, Italian, Germanic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, African and West Indian, Australasian, and Asian drama. A name index is included. Although the bibliography is limited to material in Roman-alphabet languages, its scope, orientation, and format are designed to make the project internationally useful and intelligible.
