What People are Saying About This
“Terence Rattigan was among the most successful British playwrights of the modern era – a master of comedy as well as tragedy. He is so incredibly good it should come as no surprise that a significant revival has been underway for some time. In fact, Rattigan has been slowly achieving a permanent place of esteem in the essential repertoire of twentieth century dramatists. And that place will be bolstered by this brilliant comprehensive study of the playwright’s art by John A. Bertolini. His book is a pleasure to read: elegantly written, persistently intelligent, and lucid, and it does exactly what it promises: makes a case for Rattigan.” (Jay Parini, D.E.Axinn Professor of English, Middlebury College, USA)
