As time goes on, some of the most notable and respected artists of modern times leave the world. Unfortunately, another one has passed on. According to BBC News, author of ‘Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolf?’ Edward Albee has passed away. This is sad news for people who were fans of Albee’s writings and all of his works.
Officials reporting on Albee’s death have not given much information. CNN reports that his assistant states that he died in his home on Friday. As of right now, no cause of death has been given, but people are hoping that as the family handles this situation, some more incite would be given.
Albee was a very well respected author in the Untied States and all over the world. Not only has he won three Pulitzer prizes for his writings, but the playwright was also thought to be one of the most influential American writers of all time. During his lifetime, Albee was often held with the same respect and esteem that people viewed Author Miller and August Wilson with.
Albee’s most notable work, ‘Whose Afraid of Virgina Wolf?’ is viewed as one of the most influential American plays of all time. The show won a Tony award during its original production. The show was later turned into a major motion picture that starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Elizabeth Taylor also won an Academy Award for her work on the film.
Albee is a writer whose works contributed a lot to the American public and the world’s perception of American literature. His works have influenced many playwrights and will continue to do so for many years to come. Albee will surely be missed in the country, but his works and contributions will live on through those who will continue to study his writings.
