From the "angry young man" who wrote Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1962, determined to expose the emptiness of American experience to Tiny Alice which reveals his indebtedness to Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco's Theatre of the Absurd, Edward Albee's varied work makes it difficult to label him precisely. Bruce Mann and his contributors approach Albee as an innovator in theatrical form, filling a critical gap in theatrical scholarship.
"A retrospective by Albee critic Anne Palucci has much to recommend it, especially as it explores the influence of Pirandello." -- Thomas E. Luddy, Library Journal
"A strong entry on Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf pushed historical analogies further than before." -- Library Journal
