363pp. Photographs. A very good, clean, tight, bright copy. Some very slight wear todj enclosed in mylar protector "This collection satisfies the need for an introduction to Baltic drama, but reveals a greater one: the need for at least some of these plays to be disseminated among not just those who already have an interest in Baltic theatre and literature, but those who are interested in theatre and literature, regardless of the nationality. I hope and urge that the work that Alfreds Straumanis has begun as editor of this series not be lost on some unvisited shelves of the university library. Let these plays gain audiences in performance and gain readers from this collection and even more readers from inclusion in general anthologies meant for wide circulation among students and lovers of dramatic literature." (Lituanus) Each play is preceded by a brief introductory essay. FIVE POSTS IN A MARKETPLACE by Algirdas Landsbergis. THE AWAKENING by Antanas Skema. MAD, CHRISTOPHER, MAD by Martins Ziverts. THE BLUE ONE by Gunars Priede. CINDARELLAGAME by Paul-Eerik Rummo. ILLUMINATIONS by Enn Vetemaa.
