Summary
  • "This book provides an in-depth look at the work of British writer Trevor Griffiths, a powerful and unique presence in British theater, television, and film for the past thirty years."--BOOK JACKET. "Stanton B. Garner, Jr.'s study is the first to present and critically discuss the full range of Griffiths's works; it expands and revises our understanding of Griffiths as a political dramatist and screenwriter. Garner shows that Griffiths's works reveal an intense awareness of class and its material underpinnings, a concern with the power of realism, an overarching commitment to history as a field of political and cultural intervention, and a willingness to examine the terms and parameters of this intervention."--Jacket
  • "Trevor Griffiths: Politics, Drama, History will appeal to a wide range of readers who share an interest in contemporary theater, television and film studies, literature, and politics. Students of contemporary British history and cultural studies will also find the book of interest for its focus on the politics of cultural intervention in Griffiths's work."--Jacket
