Irrevocably Intertwined: Analyzing the Plays of Edward Albee

Greg Carlisle

Irrevocably Intertwined outlines and analyzes each of Edward Albee’s thirty published plays, both on their own terms and from the viewpoint that each play is one facet of Albee’s entire, unified body of work. Each play is considered to be equally significant to Albee’s development as a playwright, regardless of its length or critical reception. Throughout his rich and varied canon, Albee’s characters continually struggle to inspire in others an understanding of their subjective identities, to manage the animal impulses that lie just beneath the veneer of their civilized behavior, and to face the reality that living each present moment is preferable to closing down.
