There and then he prophesized the development of a nondramatic character. Antidrama of any kind still preserves the medium and heritage of the literary theater. This neo-Hegelian approach has helped Hungarian critics to swallow Albee in almost the same gulp as Miller and Williams. Some readily acknowledge him as a rebellious part of the postIbsen / Chekhov / Strindberg heritage (something Albee himself admits) and joyfully announce that naturalism is not dead. Others would interpret Albee's dramas as rites of passage in the theatrical sense.

Disent ces critiques Albee déteste irremédiablement les femmes. Son oeuvre entiére n'est elle pas colorée par cette phobie? Ou bien, estiment les tenants d'une autre école, s'agit ilsimplement de la guerre entre les sexes et de la dénonciation des vertus étouffantes de la femme américaine? Le symbole de Mom ne représentet-il pas un aspect authentique, fondamental, de la civilization d'aujourd'hui? 3 Having already partially broken my promise, I must state my point clearly. Without deeply immersing myself in musicology, I shall treat Albee's lifework like toccatas and fugues composed upon a relatively stable vision of Life.

Demonstrates this continuity. Albee only slightly takes sides in this eternal quarrel. His primary aim is to show confrontation. The responses and sympathies of any given audience may change in accordance with generational inclination, but one thing is certain: oscillation is provided, give or take whatever one likes. These aging Hamlets and Claudiuses are acting younger and younger. Personally, I do not consider Albee's "second" classic, A Delicate Balance (1966), a lesser product than Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
