Critical Remarks

The Rhetoric of Resistance: An Appraisal of John Osborne’s Plays is a wonderful book – surely Bhoi’s most compelling and a definitive guide to Osborne’s ‘Angry Theatre.’

                                                                                                                         Prof. N.S. R.Ayengar

In this book on John Osborne's plays, Dr. Chittaranjan Bhoi has done a brilliant job of introducing us to the harsh realities of post-war British life, as well as to Osborne's work of transforming these realities into theatrical representations, which Osborne hoped would improve things for the oppressed segments of society he knew were suffering the most.  It is my hope that readers of this very fine book will use it not only to see how others have attempted to rescue us from serious social dangers, but also to inspire them personally to act through other means of positive influence.
