Two strong, expressionist plays from the early career of one of the twentieth century's most significant writers.
The Hairy Ape
A nightmarish condemnation on the dehumanising effects of industrialisation on the American people. Robert 'Yank' Smith, an animalistic stoker, breaks free from his engine room confines when he is spurned by the glamorous society woman, Mildred Douglas. Looking to find his free self out in the 'real' world, Yank goes on the rampage but how much will his freedom cost him And is there really any such thing'
All God's Chillun Got Wings
A vigorous social commentary based around a violently dysfunctional mixed race marriage. Ella is the neurotically jealous white wife of Jim, a driven, charismatic black man. She sabotages his career, effectively destroying him, before her frenzy lapses into remorseless dependency.
This edition includes a full introduction, biographical sketch and chronology.
