Description

Edward Albee ANTIQUE SIGNATURE on a Printed Bookplate approximately 3 1/2 inches high by 4 1/4 inches wide Noted American Playwright. Signed In Ink: "EDWARD ALBEE/1984."

EDWARD (FRANKLIN) ALBEE III (1928 -2016) was an American playwright known for works such as "The Zoo Story" (1958), "The Sandbox" (1959), "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf" (1962), "A Delicate Balance" (1966), and "Three Tall Women" (1994). Some critics have argued that some of his work constitutes an American variant of what Martin Esslin identified and named the Theater Of The Absurd. Three of his plays won the Pulitzer Prize For Drama, and two of his other works won the Tony Award. His works are often considered frank examinations of the modern condition. His early works reflect a mastery and Americanization of the Theatre of the Absurd that found its peak in works by European playwrights such as Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco, & Jean Genet. His middle period comprised plays that explored the psychology of maturing, marriage, and sexual relationships. Younger American playwrights, such as Paula Vogel, credit Albee's mix of theatricality and biting dialogue with helping to reinvent postwar American theatre in the early 1960s. Later in life, Albee continued to experiment in works such as "The Goat" or "Who Is Sylvia".
