dc.description.abstract Attempts to establish that there is a definite line of development in Stoppard's work, from an early lack of interest in political issues towards an increasing concern with freedom of speech and other human rights. The study analyses Stoppard's plays in chronological order and attempts to trace the line of development in Stoppard's work, from an apolitical disengagement to freedom of expression and a need for personal participation in the fight for individual freedom. Stoppard's increasing concern with political issues clearly focuses on freedom of speech and human rights in the Eastern bloc countries. Although there is a definite movement towards a more pronounced stance on certain political issues, this has not been a sudden and unexpected conversion. This study thus offers: an outline of Stoppard's most distinctive qualities as a playwright; a brief examination of theoretical concerns; analyses of Stoppard's plays; and the identification of a developmental pattern from an apolitical stance to a definite concern with human rights and freedom of speech. en
