The Small Town in American Drama by Ima Honaker Herron
The Small Town in American Drama by Ima Honaker Herron analyzes American life from Down East New England to the Mississippi Delta and on to the Frontier as it appears on stage in some 300 plays where it becomes again three-dimensional life.
This a thoughtful, thorough and carefully researched study of a basic view of America - the American people from their Puritan villages to Gold-rush living and on to sentimental southern days and the old "homestead" wherever it was.
It is a journey well taken and enjoyed! One of my favorite books on American drama.
Unfortunately, the physical book has a serious problem--the binding has separated after the first two pages. Beyond that page, the binding is firm--some foxing, no marks, no tears on pages, even a good dust jacket although with frayed edges.
The information in the book, illustrated with its 25 carefully chosen pictures, is there to enjoy and to profit by your reading. The book measures 6 1/4 inches by 9 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inch and has 565 pages.
A collectible book published by Southern Methodist University Press, Dallas, Texas.
