Studying Modern Drama Reviews


'Its major strength for me lies in its clarity of tone and student-friendly, sympathetic 'voice'...I positively envy its clarity.' - Kate Malone Smith, Chester College of Higher Education 'As far as I know there is no competing text which offers this kind of help, with workshop exercises and advice on writing essays and answering examination questions. Its friendly and interactive style will be particularly helpful to students who find it difficult to know how to approach a play text.' - Professor Robert Wilcher, The University of Birmingham
