Modern Drama by Women 1880s-1930s: An International Anthology written by Katherine E. Kelly

Overview:

A groundbreaking anthology that will incite a major reappraisal of the role of women playwrights in the creation of modern drama, Modern Drama by Women 1880s-1930s offers English-language readers and performers a first-ever sampling of once-prominent plays by women from around the world. Featured are twelve plays by women from the Americas, Europe, and Asia, spanning a national and stylistic range from Swedish realism to Russian symbolism. Six of these plays are appearing in their first English-language translation. Playwrights and plays include:
Anne-Charlotte Leffler Edgren, True Women, (Sweden)
Amelia Pincherle Rosselli, Her Soul, (Italy)
Elsa Bernstein, Maria Arndt, (Germany)
Elizabeth Robins, Votes for Women, (Britain)
Marie Leneru, Woman Triumphant, (France)
Alfonsina Storni, Master of the World, (Argentina)
Hella Wuolijoki, Hulda Juurakko, (Finland)
Hasegawa Shigure, Wayward Traces, (Japan)
Rachilde, Crystal Spider, (France)
Zinaida Gippius, Sacred Blood, (Russia)
Djuna Barnes, The Dove, (USA)
Marita Bonner, The Purple Flower, (USA)

These playwrights represent the New Woman -- herself, her relationships, her crises -- in all of the styles and genres available to the modern dramatist. Unprecedented in diversity and scope, Modern Drama by Women is a collection which no scholar, student, or lover of modern drama can afford to miss.
