Maxwell Anderson

Uit Wikipedia, de vrije encyclopedie

James Maxwell Anderson (Atlantic (Pennsylvania), 15 december 1888Stamford (Connecticut), 28 februari 1959) was een Amerikaans toneelschrijver, auteur, dichter, journalist en liedjesschrijver. Hij was een stichtend lid van The Playwrights Company.

Loopbaan

Anderson ontving de Pulitzer Prize in 1933 voor zijn toneelstuk Both Your Houses en twee keer de New York Drama Critics Circle Award: één keer voor Winterset (1935) en de tweede keer voor High Tor (1937). Alfred S. Rillingen zei dat, als de jaren twintig die van Eugene O'Neill waren, de jaren dertig ongetwijfeld die van Maxwell Anderson waren. Hij is ook bekend als dichter, journalist, scenarioschrijver en componist.
