Description:
London: Heinemann, 1964. This study of J.B. Priestley's work is the first to attempt detailed analyses of his major plays, and to relate them to his personality and thought. It shows the underlying unity behind the restless, exciting and sometimes apparently contradictory themes of Priestley's dramatic imagination. The book deals in great detail with the time-plays, and relates them to the comedies and the sociological plays. It is designed to provide a work of reference for students of twentieth-century drama and to enrich the experience of those many theatregoers to whom the thirties in particular meant Priestley. Green cloth boards.....gilt title print to spine. Ffep shows top corner clip. No ownership markings. Bibliography (The plays of J.B. Priestley, with dates of first performance) and index supplied. Dust jacket shows edge-chipping but remains bright.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.
