About the Book:

Covering the full scope of Western Drama, from the Greeks to the 20th Century, Classical Monologues: Volume 2 contains 119 monologues for older men from sources other than Shakespeare's plays. The excerpted works range from the celebrated to the obscure, spanning over 2,000 years of theatrical history.

Each monologue features a detailed introduction from the editor Leon Katz, providing an informative and critical context for theatre professionals and general readers alike. The volume is organized into Tragedy/Drama and Comedy divisions, and the monologues are helpfully arranged by period as well as chronologically. Also, the monologues are fully footnoted for unfamiliar references and definitions and the bibliography provides exhaustive listings of sources for all the plays from which the monologues have been drawn.

Simply put, Leon Katz's monumental monologue collection is a must for actors, directors, teachers and students of classical theatre!
