Honolulu: University of Hawai`i Press, 1999. 164 pp. + illus. Cloth $33.00; paper $14.95 This book is the first English anthology of plays by Oh T'ae-s ok, Korea's lead ing playwright and most prominent director, who is also considered one of the most original theatre artists working in Asia today. The book includes five of Oh's most frequently staged plays ranging from the 1970s to the 1990s: Bicycle (1983), Intimacy Between Father and Son (1992), Ch'un-p'ung's Wife (1976), Lifecord (1974), and Why Did Shim Ch'ng Plunge into the Sea Twice? (1991). o In view of the dearth of resource materials available in English, this book provides a valuable addition to Korean theatre scholarship.

Graves, these translations can be used both as texts for world drama courses and as performance scripts for the stage. Full-page performance photographs of the five plays and a translator's note help to promote understanding of
