The inter-war years were a period of immense excitement in the French theatre. During this time, a host of young writers and young producers, breaking with the traditions of the new pre-1914 stage, came up with new themes, new dramatic techniques, and new production methods, to suit the new times and the new audiences. It is doubtful whether some of the most successful Parisian playwrights, Sartre, Beckett, Ionesco, would have ever have captured the attention of the general public or world had it not been for the avant-garde Atelier-Théâtre movement that prepared the way for them. Dr. Knowles's book is an attempt at describing what happened during this period, and to point to the influence that the ideas then current had on subsequent developments. **** NOT EX LIB ****
