In this extensively revised and updated edition of her classic work, Look Back in Gender, Michelene Wandor confirms the symbiotic relationship between drama and gender in a provocative look at key, representative British plays from the last fifty years.
Repositioning the text at the heart of hteatre studies, Wandor surveys plays by Ayckbourn, Beckett, Churchill, Daniels, Friel, Hare, Kane, Osborne, Pinter, Ravenhill, Wertenbaker, Wesker and others. Her nuanced argument, central to any analysis of contemporary drama, discusses:
*the imperative of gender in the playwright's imagination
*the function of gender as a major determinant of the text's structural and narrative drives
*the impact of socialism and feminism on post-war British drama, and the relevance of feminist dynamics in drama
*differences in the representation of the fmaily, sexuality and the mother, before and after 1968
*the impact of the slogan that the 'personal is political' on contemporary form and content.

In this extensively revised and updated edition of Michelene Wandor's classic work Look Back in Gender, Wandor takes another provocative look at a selection of key British plays from the last fifty years. Wandor scrutinises plays by, among others, Ayckbourn, Beckett, Churchill, Daniels, Friel, Hare, Osborne, Pinter, Ravenhill and Wesker. This lively polemic examines many issues including: The impact of femiinist and socialist politics throughout the drama of the period The representation of the family, sexuality and the mother in these plays The function of the gender dynamic in determining structural and narrative drive The crucial imperative of gender in the playwright's imagination Wandor's nuanced argument still situates gender at the heart of mainstream theatre and reaches some surprising conclusions about the "politics of the personal" as a powerful theatrical dynamic.
