Splintered Stage Decline of the American Theater, 1965 R. H. Gardner

Regular price $12.00
The Splintered Stage, 1965  by R. H.Gardner is a startling and thoughtfully evocative commentary on the decline of American drama by a classically oriented scholar coming to grips with 20th century society and the playwrights who present it on stage.

Fifty plus years later the book is even more thoughtfully disturbing.  Gardner sees Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud  as the chief disturbers.  And today ???

The book measures 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches by 7/8 of an inch.   It has 159 pages and no illustrations.  Strong binding, no marks or tears, with a dust jacket in good condition, the book shows some shelf wear, and the lower part of the front and back cover has been discolored and thus damaged, probably by water or dampness.
