Michael J. Sidnell Dances of Death: The Group Theatre of London in the Thirties
At first glance, this book would seem of interest only to the historian of the inter-war period or to an enthusiast for that ambitious and anachronistic twentieth-century English theatrical movement, poetic drama, a movement which while it once held such high promise is now completely in eclipse. (Who but the most devoted admirer of Auden, Isherwood, Spender or Louis MacNeice would for pleasure choose to turn from their poetry to their plays?)
