I know that I am not alone in searching for the main line and the deviations in an important writer's works. 4 I consider it not only the name of any frustrated family's desired equilibrium but also that of Albee's personal technique of fusing tradition and innovation.

The Regional Alternative Theater 86 6. Conclusion, Outlook, and Reminiscences 92 Notes 101 Index 109 Page vii CROSSCURRENTS/ MODERN CRITIQUES/ THIRD SERIES In the early 1960s, when the Crosscurrents/Modern Critiques series was developed by Harry T. Moore, the contemporary period was still a controversial one for scholarship. Even today the elusive sense of the present dares critics to rise above mere impressionism and to approach their subject with the same rigors of discipline expected in more traditional areas of study.

One must not forget that it was not only the Theater of the Absurd (Beckett, Ionesco, Adamov, Genet) that influenced Albee and the whole of American drama but that the absurd, as viewed by Camus and other French philosophers and playwrights, also played a large part. A list of Albee's favorite playwrights is almost confusing in its diversity: O'Neill and Williams, Aeschylus and Sardou, Brecht and Beckett, Pinter and Behan, and generation-mates Richardson and Gelber.
