Description - Playwright as Rebel by Nicholas Dromgoole

Why in the long history of theatre are there so few high points? What was is it about Ancient Greek theatre, Elizabethan theatre and Racine's seventeenth-century France that made them particularly able to respond to and create the high points in tragic drama? Where do MoliPre's comedies spring from? Why was the theatre in England so despised in the 18th and 19th centuries? Dromgoole's essays in theatre history not only examine particular plays at key moments in drama history, but in setting them in their cultural and historical context, attempt to answer these wider questions.
