Tom Stoppard: Plays 5 : Arcadia, The Real Thing, Night & Day, Indian Ink, HapgoodTom Stoppard: Plays 5 : Arcadia, The Real Thing, 
Night & Day, Indian Ink, Hapgood 

by Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard's drama is complex and full of witty wordplay. It can be confusing, especially upon first reading or viewing, but all of that is just a part of what makes his work so beautiful and appealing to the reader or playgoer who, caught up in the wordplay and fireworks of the complexity, experiences the brilliant result. This collection has two, maybe three, of his best works - or at least my favorites. Like all great works of literature they are worth returning to; the levels of meaning continue to unfold a reveal the worth of each play.
