Abstract: 

American drama has continually been developing since Eugene O'Neill who is considered as the father of the modern American drama. After O'Neill, two great dramatists appeared, T. Williams and A. Miller who are considered along with O'Neill as modernist playwrights. With the appearance of Edward Albee a new kind of playwriting was introduced to the American literature which was rooting from the absurd movement in Europe. Many other dramatists appeared after Albee and wrote postmodern plays. One of the greatest of these playwrights is Sam Shepard, who developed the idea of transformation of character in his plays. The writer of this article studies Sam Shepard and presents a comprehensive coverage of the playwright and his works.
