Index of Names and Key Terms
I have indexed all the texts listed in Chapter 4, not only the texts and excerpts included in my collection. Primarily I indexed those passages that contribute to the overall topic of my collection--in other words, those that try to describe, define or improve the American drama and theatre. Passages dealing with other themes, such as ancient, Elizabethan, or British theatre and drama were not indexed. Numbers refer to the items in Chapter 4, and italics indicate that the text to which the index number refers is represented in this collection. However, an italicized index number may refer to a passage not reprinted in my collection. In general I have indexed persons only if their achievement is in some way discussed, not if they are just mentioned in passing. Consequently, the authors of the articles in the bibliography are not lined in the index.
