    This study takes a different approach to the work of poet-playwright Clifford Odets. Rather than focusing on biographical and political factors surrounding his works, Cantor provides a close reading of 11 of Odets' plays as a whole, grounding his study within an analysis of themes common to each text.

Walt Odets is the son of the playwright.

Reading it, I was reminded of a review of an AIDS-related film that appeared in The New York Times this year. “The AIDS crisis,” the review begins, “which will remain a global crisis until a definitive cure for the disease is found, is no longer at the. “Odets presents an often harrowing picture of frailty and vulnerability on a massive scale, and his book is a much-needed corrective to the complacent view that everything is basically O.K. in the domain of gay men’s safer sex education.
