1 Heilman, Robert Bechtold The Iceman, the Arsonist, and the Troubled Agent - Tragedy and Melodrama on the Modern Stage
London George Allen and Unwin 1973 0047920092 / 9780047920097 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A Very Good+ clean, tight and unmarked copy apart from a small name to front pastedown and a small light mark to fore edge. xviii + 357 pages. In this provocative study, Professor Heilman probes the concepts that underlie contemporary drama and traces the struggle between tragedy and melodrama on the modern stage. Rejecting cliché and accepted attitudes, he shows how different dramatists look at individual character and at society, and how themes such as human weakness and perversity, destructive assaults on the community, modes of salvation, and the uses of money are dealt with by 20th century playwrights. **** NOT EX LIB ****
