Cengage Advantage Books: Pocketful of Plays: Vintage Drama, Volume II

ISBN: 9781413011333
A new addition to David Madden's POCKETFUL series (including titles in fiction, poetry, drama, and the essay), this chronologically arranged anthology contains a number of classic longer plays as well as four one-act plays, included to create a mini one-act anthology, spanning a range of time. Because one-acts plays are shorter, they are easier to teach in a shorter time period, making this a real benefit for this anthology. Rather than annotations, the author has included a question set specific to one-act plays to be used as guidance throughout reading. The plays will be accompanied by critical source material that will help students understand the playwright and/or play. This source material will include the playwright's notes and/or a review of a specific production of the play. Priced to be affordably packaged with two or even three other volumes, each book in the POCKETFUL series can also be used separately.
