Edward Albee: Uniting the Realistic Storyline With the Absurd - Edward Albee's reputation as uniting the absurd storyline with the realistic storyline is beautifully portrayed in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf and The Zoo Story. In both of these plays, the preceding quote could have provided story-changing advice for two characters who did not know how to live life outside of their expectations. In Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf, Nick was a drop of reality poured into an absurd world. Likewise, in The Zoo Story, Peter was that same drop and similar to Nick, had no idea what he was about to experience....   [tags: Literary Analysis] 709 words

Who's Afraid of Edward Albee? - Who's Afraid of Edward Albee.      Edward Albee was considered the chief playwright of the Theater of the Absurd when his first successful one-act experimental plays emerged.  The Zoo Story, The Death of Bessie Smith, The Sandbox, and Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung were all released during Albee's thirties between 1959 and 1968 (Artists  1-2).  Edward Albee was born in the nation's capitol on March 12, 1928, and his career has brought him three Pulitzer Prizes over four decades, the first for A Delicate Balance in 1966 and the most recent in 1994 for Three Tall Women.  While Albee's original works established him as a leading voice in America's Theater of the Absurd, his more mature plays were representative of traditional playwrights like Eugene O'Neill and August Strindberg.    Unlike many successful writers, the childhood of Albee was not one of deprivation.  On the contrary,  Albee was adopted at the age of two weeks by a millionaire family.  From that point on he knew a life of wealth and privilege.  He resided with his family in Westchester, New York.  His childhood experience was quite remote from that of many writers who knew squalor and deprivation.  As one magazine article said regarding his childhood years, "It was a time of servants, tutors, riding lessons, winters in Miami, summers sailing on the Sound:  there was a Rolls Royce to bring him, smuggled in lap robes, to matinees in the city; an inexhaustible wardrobe housed in a closet as big as a room.  Albee has never made any explicit comments about the happiness of his childhood.  His father was believed, however, to be dominated by his wife, who was considerably younger than her husband and an avid athlete" (Biography  1).  His grandfather was one of the major figures in the development of the razzmatazz of American show-business and the owner of a famous chain of vaudeville theaters.  Albee was named after him and this lineage gave him a great deal of exposure to plays and theater people at a young age.  Albee was not very adept at schoolwork though he showed promise as a writer from a young age.  He dropped out of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, after a year and a half to pursue a writing career full time in New York.  However, while at Trinity, Albee did gain theater experience by playing a variety of characters in plays produced by the college drama department.  Albee's success did not come overnight despite his literary promise and his high-profile contacts in the theater.  Instead, he labored at odd jobs for nearly a decade before his "breakthrough" came upon the publication of The Zoo Story, a one-act play modeled on the Theater of the Absurd ala playwrights like Beckett, Genet and Pinter.  The play was astonishingly accomplished for a first effort but Albee had to be convinced to try his hand at writing plays, "Originally his writing efforts focused on poetry and fiction until Thornton Wilder encouraged him to try playwrighting" (Artists  1).    There are some who feel that Albee never achieved the level of talent displayed in The Zoo Story, except for the plays Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf....   [tags: Biography Biographies Essays]

The Jaguar Poem - "The Jaguar" is about a trip that Hughes made to the zoo. In the poem, he describes the animals in a zoo and their behaviour. It compares the apes, parrots, tiger, lion and a boa constrictor to the jaguar, which is an animal that lives differently to the others in the way that it views its life. The poem begins by describing the apes 'yawning' and 'adoring their fleas', and the fact that they are in the sun adds to the sleepy air. I think this line was deliberately chosen to convey the monotonous lull of everyday life in the zoo and set a drowsy mood....   [tags: Ted Hughes] 1310 words
