The 20th century brought Britain once again to the forefront in world drama. Not since Shakespeare's time had Britain produced such an astounding group of talented playwrights. The names of most of these dramatists are known all over the Western world and their plays are in constant production by repertory and amateur companies everywhere. The playwrights presented in DLB Volume 10 are those whose careers had reached their heights prior to the end of World War II, or whose lives had ended by that time. The writings of these authors offer insights into the deepest thinking and the highest aspirations of the 20th century. Seven appendices offer additional information, in essay form, on the British theater during 1900-1945.71 entries include: W. H. Auden, Harold Brighouse, Noel Coward, T. S. Eliot, John Galsworthy, W. Somerset Maugham, A. A. Milne, Sean O'Casey, Bernard Shaw, John van Druten, Oscar Wilde and William Butler Yeats.
