A Mockery of Class-Conscious Britain: John Arden’s Live like Pigs
Ağın, Başak (2020-01-01)
John Arden’s 1961 play Live like Pigs presents a mockery of the clash between British underclass, working class, and middle class.

More specifically to defend the modular...
Edward Albee's drama under the influence of Samuel Beckett
Küçük, Hale; Norman, Ünal; Department of English Literature (2008)
Edward Albee is influenced by the Absurd Drama of Samuel Beckett whose works involve existential concerns. Albee follows Beckett’s traces in the dramatization of uncertainty, alienation and the question of freedom. Albee’s characters do not have fixed identities, and they suffer from their identity problems. The notion of Other enhances this uncertainty. The ambiguity of existence, whether they really are or not, presents another problem for these characters. Their lives are based on illusions, and the line...
