After the ordeal of preparing a study guide for War and Peace, I decided to tackle a shorter work. A play would be nice, I thought. While in college I had acted in Jean Anouilh’s Becket, and I thought it would be a worthwhile addition to the website. Not until I was halfway through the play did I realize that I had already written it up nine years ago. Well, that’s what comes with advancing age, I suppose. In any case, the new study guide is somewhat expanded from the original, so hopefully readers of the website will find it helpful.
