Revision as Resistance in Twentieth-Century American Drama, Hardback Book

Revision as Resistance in Twentieth-Century American Drama Hardback

Part of the American Literature Readings in the 21st Century series

Description

American dramas consciously rewrite the past as a means of determined criticism and intentional resistance.

While modern criticism often sees the act of revision as derivative, Malburne-Wade uses Victor Turner's concept of the social drama and the concept of the liminal to argue for a more complicated view of revision.
