Book Summary of Theatres Of War: French Committed Theatre From The Second World War To The Cold War

During the period 1944-1955, French authors such as Sartre, de Beauvoir, and Camus, along with other lesser-known dramatists, responded to the issues of their time by contributing a number of controversial plays to a distinctive genre of realist theatre. Addressing the ideological, political, and moral issues arising from World War II, the Cold War, and a series of disastrous colonial wars, these plays had considerable contemporary significance, but are virtually unknown today. Theatres of War is the first full-length study to be devoted to this genre of theatre and includes a chapter on the Rosenberg affair and the issue of anti-Semitism in the United States and Eastern Europe.

Theatres of War is the first full-length study to be devoted to the Committed theatre that flourished in modern France from 1944 to the mid-1950s. During this crucial decade, authors such as Sartre, de Beauvoir and Camus, along with other lesser-known dramatists, responded to the issues of their time by contributing a number of tense controversial plays to a distinctive genre of realist theatre. These plays dealt with the ideological, political and moral issues arising from the Second World War, the Cold War and a series of disastrous colonial wars. Theatres of War combines historical contextualisation, pointing up the political and moral debate of the theatre of the period, with detailed analysis of specific plays, making it a useful student text. All quotations are in French with English translations immediately following.
