Providing access to relevant citations from a variety of disciplines_art, architecture, anthropology, literature, political science, history, and others_this bibliography is intended for theatrical groups or students searching for a translation of a play or an interpretation of one, for scholars seeking an introduction to an aspect of Chinese drama beyond their immediate expertise, for teachers revising or developing courses in Chinese/Asian drama, and for libraries attempting to develop their Chinese/Asian drama collection. Part I, Drama, is a comprehensive, classified, annotated, interdisciplinary bibliography in English of articles, books, parts of books, theses, and dissertations concerning all aspects of Chinese drama from its shamanistic origins to 1985. Part II, Plays in Translation, includes references both to Chinese plays in English translation and to commentary. The plays are listed alphabetically by title. For each play, citations are listed within three possible subdivisions: scripts, selections, excerpts; summaries; commentary/criticism, with a separate name index for each part.
