The book tries to explore and identify the techniques and skills Tom Stoppard employs in bringing about the blend of the comic and the serious at different levels in his select plays which is his significant contribution to the modern drama. Through a thorough analysis of his plays, the book conveys the typical postmodernistic concerns of contemporary life. While conveying this vision of modern life to the readers, it does not fail to point out how Stoppard transcends the sense of the comic by exploring some of the most difficult, abstruse and sophisticated ideas clothed in modern philosophy and metaphysics and thereby proves that his plays are among the most profoundly intellectual of dramas written in the twentieth century context. The book is different from other studies that are available on Stoppard because it contributes to the better understanding and appreciation of Stoppard’s plays by indicating the relevance of Stoppard to modern readers.
