Collected Plays Charles Williams Introduction by John Heath-Stubbs 416 pp. / 5 x 8 / Trade Paper / $29.95 Regent ISBN 1-57383-366-5 Reprint of Oxford University Press edition, 1963 Royalties: 150.00 prepaid to Higham Need cover This volume contains the complete dramatic works of Charles Williams. Williams' plays can be enjoyed at more than one level. Though what they have in common is the author's gift for poetic expression, they also demonstrate his range. Complex theology, knockabout farce, and historical tragedy are all represented here. The plays are simple enough for amateur performances but subtle enough to give scope for many interpretations. Thomas Cranmer of Canterbury Judgement at Chelmsford * Seed of Adam The Death of Good Fortune The House by the Stable Grab and Grace or It's the Second Step The House of the Octopus Terror of Light The Three Temptations Charles Williams-novelist, poet, critic, dramatist and biographer-died in his native England in May, 1945. He had a lively and devoted following there and achieved a considerable reputation as a lecturer on the faculty of Oxford University. T. S. Eliot, Dorothy Sayers and C. S. Lewis were among his distinguished friends and literary sponsors. He was also a member of the Inklings, a group of Christian writers that included J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings.
