Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only African American playwright to win the Pulitzer Prize twice, Wilson has yet to receive the critical attention that he merits. With 12 original essays, this volume provides a thorough introduction to his body of work.

Book News Annotation:

Paperbound reprint of a 1994 work, about which Book News wrote: With 13 original essays, this volume provides a thorough introduction to the work of Wilson, the only African American playwright to win the Pulitzer Prize twice. It investigates such thematic, artistic, and ideological concerns as his use of the South and the black human body as metaphors; his collaboration with Lloyd Richards; the influence of the blues, Baraka, Bearden, Borges, and Fugard on his work; his creative method; and his treatment of African American family life. Includes a recent interview with the great man himself.
