5.0 out of 5 starsMy favorite of the Angry Young Men
Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2016
I find a lot of the other British novels and stories from the "Angry Young Men" movement not very engaging, but this play has incredible energy. I enjoyed it very much. I'm not usually drawn into plays but was totally into *Look Back in Anger* from the first scene. This might be partly because of the wonderful prose-y stage directions that do a lot with the characters, but I think it's more about the dialogue. Osborne manages to make most of these characters both extensively, ironically self-reflective and mostly not tedious, which I find really impressive. Every scene brims with (surprise) anger, depression, and the crisis of masculinity in Post-War Britain.
