About the Author

Eric Bentley was born in England in 1916 and became an American citizen in 1948. He has earned a reputation as a scholar, teacher, professional theatre critic, performer, and a playwright.

"[Eric Bentley is] the most adventurous drama critic in America." --Kenneth Tynan

"Considerations of such great dramatists as Ibsen, Strindberg, Shaw, Brecht, Wagner, and O'Neill maintain Bentley's status as one of our most penetrating, informed, and delightful critics, gifted with a prose style that in its clarity and utter lack of condescension ought to be a standard for all other critics of drama, literature, or any other art." --Booklist
