Each volume of Drama for Students contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 12 works from various cultures and time periods. Each play covered in this new resource was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians -- experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference\'s content.
Each volume (beginning with volume 27) will include two "Literature to Film" entries. Entries profiling film versions of plays not only diversify the study of drama but support alternate learning styles, media literacy, and film studies curricula as well.
See Table of Contents for a list of works included in this volume. Please note that the entire For Students series is available in ebook format.
