The Transformation of Robert E. Sherwood from Pacifist to Interventionist (Article)
Title: The Transformation of Robert E. Sherwood from Pacifist to Interventionist
Author: Harriet Hyman Alonso
Abstract: The playwright Robert E. Sherwood is most known for his powerful antiwar voice on Broadway during the late 1920s and 1930s. As fascism spread in Europe, however, Sherwood evolved from a pacifist into an interventionist. Largely relying on his diary entries and his three Pulitzer Prize-winning plays, "Idiot's Delight" (1936), "Abe Lincoln in Illinois" (1938) and "There Shall Be No Night" (1940), this article traces Sherwood's sea change from staunch pacifist to determined interventionist.
