American Drama brings together--in fully-searchable electronic format--a compilation of American dramatic literature. Within the single resource are all the nationalities that formed the beginning of early American drama, as well as the ethnicities who contributed unique sensibilities to the dramatic canon of the U.S.
English Drama contains more than 3,900 plays in verse and prose from the late thirteenth century - the likely date of the Shrewsbury Fragments - to the early twentieth. It offers coverage of the dramatic literature of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, as well as Restoration plays, medieval morality plays, and mystery cycles, and nineteenth-century closet dramas. In addition to works by major dramatists, English Drama includes the dramatic writings of many more neglected writers long inaccessible in print form.
Twentieth-Century Drama will contain 2,500 plays in English from around the world, published from the 1890s to 2004. Unlike other drama collections available today, it presents a global, inclusive collection of the most important plays written in the English language from all over the world, highlighting many nationalities and ethnicities, and offering the most and useful complete picture of twentieth century drama. It contains mostly copyright texts unavailable elsewhere in electronic form, including many out-of-print works that are difficult to obtain.
