Summary
  • American playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote is most notably known for his 1962 adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, the screenplay for the 1983 film, Tender Mercies, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1995 play, The Young Man from Atlanta. This volume examines these works and more, such as the nine-play Orphans' Home cycle, based on Foote's own childhood. Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of "Works Cited," along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources: a chronology of the author's life, a complete list of the author's works and their original dates of publication, a general bibliography, a detailed paragraph on the volume's editor, notes on the individual chapter authors, and a subject index. - Publisher
