About the Book

The Lost Temper fills a lacuna in the criticism available on the historic play, Look Back in Anger. All the essays in this volume are by Indian scholars of theatre who while showing an awareness of the latest criticism and theoretical practices, their readings of Look Back in Anger are grounded in their temporal and spatial location – now, and in India.
