The Plays of Philip Barry From Paris Bound to The Philadelphia Story

eBook - 2010
Rate this:
An important and prolific playwright, Philip Barry wrote hit plays such as The Philadelphia Story and Holiday. However, he has been largely forgotten and no book-length analysis of his work has appeared in more than forty years. With this book, Donald R. Anderson rescues the playwright from obscurity. Although Barry's successes were with comedies of manners, he also wrote dramatic and experimental works. Anderson analyzes all of Barry's plays (twenty-one in total) and questions the traditional characterization of the American playwrig.
