- DescriptionThis is the first collection of scholarly essays dedicated to an assessment of this playwright's prodigious body of work.

Also included are an interview with the playwright conducted by the editor specifically for this collection, a comprehensive chrology of his life and productions, and the most current primary and selected secondary bibliography.
