228 pp. Light edge wear and soiling, small tear at top of spine, to impressionable white dj. Dust on top page edges and soiling to bottom edge of boards of white cloth. From the dj: 'Canters and Chronicles establishes narrative as a distinct dramatic technique valuable for the interpretation of contemporary drama. Morrison's subtle insights and careful scholarship are enhanced by her use of unpublished archival materials. Kristin Morrison is associate professor of English at Boston College. She is the author of In Black and White nad coauthor of Handbook of Contemporary Drama.' 'She is a good practical critic, sensitive to the delicate psychological nuances of her two playwrights. The analysis of Krapp and his tapes and Winnie and her memories is impressive. She is just as impressive discussing the complex monologues of Pinter's Landscape and Old Times.'--Keith Cushman.
