The Playwright

When researching the playwright and their world, look for information about the playwright's influences, life experiences and dominant themes, as well as the social, political, philosophical and moral attitudes of their environment. 

Good starting points for playwright research:

  • MTSU Library Catalog - Search for books or films about the playwright. Other keywords to use in combination with a personal name are "sources" or "influence"
  • Biographical or Literary Criticism Databases
  • Multidisciplinary Article Databases
  • Reference Sources (Print or online)
