From the controversy in 1995 that heralded Blasted, to her death in February 1999, Sarah Kane built a reputation as an established playwright of international stature. This is the first volume of collected essays by some of the leading scholars in their field, providing a comprehensive approach to the body of work she produced in this brief period.

Essays included cover the political, literary and theatrical identities that have exerted influence on Kane's work, as well as discussing and assessing her innovative theatrical experiments and the performative issues that arise from within the plays.

Sarah Kane in context examines one of the most controversial and influential dramatists who emerged during the 'In-Yer Face' generation of British dramatists in the 1990s and provides an essential guide to Kane for students and scholars alike.
