This anthology was designed not only for the serious student of world literature and the drama, but for everyone interested in the stage. It is an unusual collection, containing many great plays which are not ordinarily to be found in anthologies, and several which are not currently to be found in print in English in any edition. Virtually every great dramatic tradition is represented — Greek, Roman, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Medieval, as well as such national traditions of Europe as Italian, Spanish, English, French, German, Danish, Russian, and Norwegian. This volume includes: Aeschylus: Prometheus Bound; Sophocles: Antigone; Euripides: Alcestis; Aristophanes: The Clouds; Plautus: The Captives; Terence: Phormio; Seneca: Medea; Kálidása: Śakoontalá; The Oriental plays: The Chalk Circle, Abstractions, Nakamitsu, and Fair Ladies at the Game of Poem-Cards; anonymous Medieval plays: Adam, The Wise Virgins and the Foolish Virgins, The Second Shepherd's Play, The Farce of the Worthy Master Pierre Patelin, Everyman, and St. George; Sachs: The Wandering Scholar from Paradise; Marlowe: The Tragical History of Dr. Faustus; Johnson: Every Man in His Humour; Heywood: A Woman Killed with Kindness; Beaumont and Fletcher: The Maid's Tragedy; Farquhar: The Beaux-Stratagem; Goldsmith: She Stoops to Conquer; Sheridan: School for Scandal. 26 plays in total.
