"I will definitely use The Bedford Introduction to Drama again, as I have done for most of my teaching career! It is the most comprehensive drama textbook I have found. The breadth of plays included, from so many different periods, including contemporary ones, is impressive. I also find the background information and commentaries to be informative and accessible to beginning students."
