First published in 1969, provides a helpful introduction to the study of Absurdist writing and drama in the first half of the twentieth century. After discussing a variety of definitions of the Absurd, it goes on to examine a number of key figures in the movement such as Esslin, Sartre, Camus, Ionesco and Genet. The book concludes with a discussion of the limitations of the term 'Absurd' and possible objections to Absurdity.

This book will be of interest to those studying Absurdist literature as well as twentieth century drama, literature and philosophy.
