The Significance and Artistry: A Critical Study of Clifford Odets The Big Knife

S Silambuselvam;Dr.V K Saravanan

Abstract

This is the article that states about Clifford Odets and his plays. It also presents a brief introduction on Clifford Odets and his journey before becoming a successful playwright. Even though Odets is more popular, he has had different varieties in his part. Odets could have done more with his material in The Big Knife, but as the popular approval which it received, as indicated by its first run and the fact it has recently been made into a movie, seems to show, it is a play with more than critics that gave it credit for, at the time of its first appearance on the stage.

Keywords
