History of the Theatre (2nd ed.)
Oscar G. Brockett / 1974
Allyn & Bacon, Inc. / ISBN 0205042961
Again, this is an earlier (1974) edition of which there are many, many more;
a classic theatre textbook, and I'm sure there have been thousands
of college students trying to stay focused through
"Directing and Acting in France: 1800-1850"
just as I did in 1974.
Good luck to them all.
