Each volume of Drama for Students contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 12 to 15 works from various cultures and time periods. Each play covered in this new resource was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians -- experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference's content.
Each volume (beginning with volume 27) will include two "Literature to Film" entries. Entries profiling film versions of plays not only diversify the study of drama but support alternate learning styles, media literacy, and film studies curricula as well.
Here are some of the plays they will find: "9 Parts of Desire" by Heather Raffo, "Desire Under the Elms" by Eugene O'Neill, "Henrietta" by Karen Jones-Meadows, "Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil" by Bill Harris, and "The Trojan Women" by Euripides.
