This volume is a carefully delineated study of the plays of James Reaney, written by his son, James Stewart Reaney, who is very familiar with the plays and the characters as he literally grew up with them. This young writer treats his father’s work with an objectivity and clarity surprising in one who has been so intimately  and closely associated with them since childhood. The author presents a short biographical sketch of his father — the man and the playwright — followed by an analysis of his plays.
