Blurb/Shorttext:
Sir Arnold Wesker (born 24 May 1932) is considered one of the key figures in 20th Century English drama. He is the author of over 50 plays, translated into 18 languages and performed worldwide. Reputed as a social realist, Wesker is best known for his most articulate animation of the post-war decline of ‘idealism’ and the resulting disillusionment. This recurring theme is seen being played out through his different characters in different plays. This book is a critical appraisal of Wesker’s major plays, mapping the failure of idealism in his characters and plots.Highly recommended for all scholars and lovers of English literature, the book is among very few works delivering upon the tradition of idealism in English literature at large, with focus on its key player Arnold Wesker.
