This anthology examines the life and selected works of North Carolina’s most distinguished playwright of the 20th century, Paul Green (1894-1981). 

Paul Green is best known for his outdoor historical dramas, which are still performed across the United States. However, he was not only a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, but was also an activist committed to human rights, racial equity, prison reform, and ending the death penalty. This anthology includes the frank reflections from an award-winning array of contemporary North Carolina writers. Their essays about Green’s work and relationships are meant to launch new conversations about a man who was seen as progressive, even radical, in his time.
