From Publishers Weekly
Albee's drama of an old woman coming to grips with her life and approaching death earned him his third Pulitzer. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Booklist
Albee's best plays have always walked a line between heightened realism and dark comedy. Even his most surreal works are populated with characters who wouldn't seem out of place in real life. His 1994 Pulitzer Prize winner runs true to form. It begins as a naturalistic conversation among three women (identified as A, B, and C) from successive generations who meet in a hospital room. Each is undergoing a change from one life phase to another, and each faces her travails and disappointments with lots of Albee's trademark bitter wit. In the second...

But his most notable accomplishment came a year later with his first full-length play, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. His plays were linked with the philosophies of the European absurdists, Beckett and Ionesco, and the...

Samuel Beckett: The Grove Centenary Edition, Volume III: Dramatic Works
Samuel Beckett
0802118194
March 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Edited by Paul Auster, this four–volume set of Beckett's canon has been designed by award winner Laura Lindgren. Available individually, as well as in a boxed set, the four hardcover volumes have been specially bound with covers featuring images central to Beckett's works. Typographical errors that remained uncorrected in the various prior editions have now been corrected in consultation with Beckett scholars C. J. Ackerley and S. E. Gontarski.

"I am always deeply puzzled when people say of Beckett, 'Oh, he's so difficult!'–or avant garde, or complex, or . . . ambiguous. It is the profoundest nonsense, for Beckett is perhaps the most naturalistic playwright I know of, as well as the clearest and least obscure. The 'obscurity' resides in the assumption of obscurity. I know that if Beckett's outdoor...
