 About the Book 

I want to give this 5 stars, but his poetry is what has makes him special. The reason why I wanted to give this 5 stars is that these being plays and filled with mostly dialog, Edson thrives on the manner in which humans speak to each other and the meanings that we put into speech and the meanings that we extract from others speech. I dont believe that the latter is made as clear as it should be being that these are plays. Russ has a way with words and I love seeing these words represent communication and semantics through dialog of these 4 plays.
