Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Representative American Plays

Before each play, a brief introduction explains its significance and gives a biographical sketch of the author, together with necessary information concern ing his plays. N o pains have been spared to make these introductions accurate, and the editor has fortunately had at his disposal not only the usual histories of the theatre, but also manuscript sources such as the Bird and Boker Papers and the Diary of William Wood, the Manager of the Chestnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, as well as the printed sources that are included in the Clothier Collection of American Plays in the Library of the University of Pennsylvania. In the cases of the modern plays the information has been checked in nearly every case by the playwrights themselves. In each of the introductions a se lected bibliography has been given. It has seemed unnecessary to cumber these with long lists of magazine articles of a fugitive character but it is hoped that the references given will b' found helpful. A general bibliography of books relating to the American Drama has been placed at the end of the volume.

In each introduction is given also the source of the text. Where it was possible to obtain acting versions of the older texts, the differences between these and the reading versions have been indicated. In general where emenda tions have been made, they have been included in square brackets. The Spell ing has followed that of the original text, and the stage directions have been reprinted in the older plays as originally given. Several of the modern plays have been revised by the authors and their wishes have naturally been followed both as to text and stage directions. Some slight alterations have been made even here for the sake of uniformity, and where the preparation of the text has fallen on the editor alone, he has tried to present the stage directions in a read able form, according to modern standards of technique.
