Thornton Wilder, (1897 – 1975) was an American icon. He was an internationally famous playwright and novelist, and a three time Pulitzer Prize winner [for the plays 'Our Town' and 'The Skin of Our Teeth' and the novel 'The Bridge of San Luis Rey'], and the recipient of many other prestigious awards. He was a very popular, intelligent and clever writer, with the capacity to exploit such modernist techniques as those of Gertrude Stein [and James Joyce] in comparatively commercial interests, and has been the subject of considerable controversy.

The Alcestiad is set in Thessaly many centuries before the Golden Age of Greece. A fascinating play with much underlying meaning.

A very informative Foreword by Isabel Wilder, his sister, is also included.
