Description

Presents a biographical essay and the full texts of two plays, both adaptations of George Moore's realistic novel of the 1890's, Esther Waters. Traces the collaboration between Moore, an anglo-Irish playwright, critic and novelist, and the American dramatist and critic Barrett H. Clark. Through a detailed examination of the plays against the background of Moore's many letters to Clark and Clark's extensive notes, the author corrects many false conclusions critics have drawn about the plays and the nature of the collaboration. Suitable for students of British literature and British drama.
