Clark, Barrett Harper, editor, European Theories of the Drama, with a Supplement on the American Drama, New York 1947. The book was first published in 1918, and revised in a number of editions, the following decades, also after the death of Clark (1890-1953) by Henry Popkin in 1965. The most recent edition is from 1983. The book is an anthology, introducing an number of commentators on the drama, from Aristotle onto the early 20th century, and including substantial excerpts from their writings. Clark has also published other books on drama and literature. In this text, Clark's book has been used to a great extent, as for quotes of historic writing almost exclusively.
