I don't have any books I don't want.

I do have a number of unpostable books of drama. They are Penguin Classics, never read, that I once acquired from contacts with all-black schools to which Penguin once gave tons of books, first snipping an inch off right hand cover and stamping twice, NOT FOR SALE. Most of these are Greek and Roman stuff, but if you would promise to read what I send, respond and I will list what is available.

Hmmm, not as many plays as I expected in 100 plus books.

Arms and The Man by Shaw
an extra copy of Death of a Salesman
Medea And Other Plays by Euripedes

Pretty sure I have an unpostable 35 cent paperback of Streetcar Named Desire.

In these unpostable Penguin classics I also notice all sorts of short stories by Checkov and Maupassant. A love story by Longus titled Daphnis and Chloe. Novels by Gaskell and Trollope I am certain to never read. A standard anthology of Greek Lit (*has Plato, a little Aristotle, etc).Over 100 "classics" from all nations. Name something you want and I will check. Want a Faery Queen? One big anthology of Wordsworthless?

Please, please, please pick me!  I have a very beat-up copy of "7 Famous Greek Plays".  It has Prometheus Bound, Agamemnon, Oedipus the King, Antigone, Alcestis, Medea, and The Frogs.   I will gladly send you (or anyone else) that actually wants this!

I don't remember the titles off-hand, but I'll look them up, I know that I have at least one or two actual plays in my bank of books. I'll let you know what they are after I find them.
