Summary

The late nineteenth and early twentieth century marked a tumultuous period in Poland's history, with artists and writers working under difficult sociopolitical conditions. This book contains the first English- language translations of four plays by Polish writers in the modernist tradition: Snowby Stanislaw Przybyszewski, In a Small Houseby Tadeusz Rittner, Ashantiby Wlodzimierz Perzynski, and All the Sameby Leopold Staff. Well-chosen and carefully annotated, these translations provide important insight into this underexplored area of Polish dramatic history and practice and facilitate greater understanding of its role in the development of European theater. Also included is a broad discussion of the characteristics of translation for the theater.
