ONE-ACT PLAYS BY MODERN AUTHORS by Helen Louise Cohen 1921
One-Act Plays by Modern Authors. Helen Louise Cohen (editor), Harcourt Brace & Co., New York, 1921.
Helen Louise Cohen made modern and classic plays more accessible to high school students around the country through her widely used anthologies.
Cohen’s anthologies focused on modern American drama, in the hopes that students would feel a sense of national pride and also be inspired to write their own plays. Her passionate introductions to her anthologies reflected these hopes, describing how to engage with a play and how students should understand (or construct) a well–written drama.
