The Dramatica series aims to introduce readers to important areas in the theory and history of theatre, dramatic works and scenic art viewed in a broader cultural and social context, with theatre being understood to be a distinct expression of human creative activity, which has played a pivotal role in the history of society. The series is intended for both university and professional audiences as well as for the general public. Although monographs by Czech specialists in the study of theatre form the basis of the book, translated works by important foreign authors form an integral part of the publication as well.
