This volume consists of three of Millay's previously published plays, Two Slatterns and a King, The Lamp and the Bell, and Aria da Capo. All verse dramas, the plays show Millay's range of topics, with The Lamp and the Bell drawing on her feminist ideals and focusing on relationships between women and Aria da Capo representing her political ideologies. Two Slatterns and a King, a satirical take on the medieval morality drama, also takes on the challenge of defying literary and political traditions of patriarchy and power. Very Good. First Edition.
