With hallucinatory plays populated by cowboys, rock stars, space aliens, and other archetypal figures of American pop culture, Shepard has reshaped the course of modern American drama. His dramatic portraits of the dysfunctional American family, composed in theatrical states of exploded consciousness, expose the lurking chaos and inherent violence of post-modern American society. His relentless artistic output has moved him from the fringe of American culture to ever-widening popular recognition, culminating in his 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the tribute of seeing his plays surpass even those of Tennessee Williams as the most frequently produced in this country. David DeRose's study of Shepard is the most comprehensive to date, with commentary on all the plays, including Shepard's early "lost" plays, his experimentations in music theater, and his most recent work, States of Shock. DeRose draws on his access to many of Shepard's unpublished works and his personal exposure to Shepard's plays in production at Yale University, in New York City, and at the Magic Theater in San Francisco. His dual perspective as scholar and director provides unusual and penetrating insights into Shepard's theatrical intentions and thematic concerns. Written in smooth and highly accessible prose, Sam Shepard will serve as the definitive work on the playwright for years to come10074ocn007491866book19810.47Marranca, BonnieAmerican dreams : the imagination of Sam ShepardCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+88617388459193ocn033665914book19960.23Shepard, SamCruising paradise : talesFictionManuscriptsForty stories on a variety of subjects.

Some have gone further in their praise: Partisan Review, for example, has described him as one of the two greatest dramatists of the American theater, the other being Eugene O'Neill. But despite that praise, and despite the fact that his plays have won numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize, there have been until now no extended studies of his work. Although primarily giving literary and dramatic analysis, Mottram also constructs a biographical context for the plays that is a blend of straightforward fact and Shepard's imaginative recreations of significant events in his own life. Shepard once wrote, "I'm taking notes in as much detail as possible on an event that's happening somewhere inside me"; that "event," fueled by what Shepard has called a library of stored images and experiences, constitutes an inner landscape that is expressed throughout the plays as well as in his collections of prose and poetry. This study traces some of the prominent features of that inner landscape, showing that Sam Shepard, like Walt Whitman before him, celebrates himself while simultaneously projecting a vision of America that is often profoundly disturbing."--Book jacket8414ocn819323286file20120.53CrankUnderstanding Sam ShepardCriticism, interpretation, etcThis book investigates the notoriously complex and confusing dramatic world of Sam Shepard, one of America's most prolific, thoughtful, and challenging contemporary playwrights. During his nearly fifty-year career as a writer, actor, director, and producer, Shepard has consistently focused his work on the ever-changing American cultural landscape. James A.

Sam Shepard has moved - and confounded - millions with some of the most dynamic theater America has seen since the heyday of O'Neill, Odets, and Arthur Miller. This biographical-critical book is about Sam Shepard's plays. Although it does not claim a literal connection between the work and the life, it does suggest that Shepard's plays remain the truest source for discovery of his humanistic views and the important roles his family and friends have played in his life. Following an introduction and short biography of the early days, both in Duarte, California, and in the heady atmosphere of Greenwich Village in the early sixties, the book goes on to a consideration of Shepard's plays, succinctly drawing on biographical data to provide a comprehensive and transitional approach to his achievement. Recurring themes and images are shown to reverberate through the plays, signifying a stream of consciousness that reveals more than it seemingly tells. Among the plays discussed are La Turista, Mad Dog Blues, Geography of a Horse Dreamer, Curse of the Starving Class, True West, Fool for Love, A Lie of the Mind, and his latest work States of Shock. Through Martin Tucker's close reading of Shepard's plays we come to see the curve of the playwright's career, from the more complex to the more concrete; from the experimental to the conventional, but more finely shaded. Shepard has called himself the "ultimate foe of terminal stasis": this book helps to explain why6673ocn035777422book19970.59Wade, Leslie ASam Shepard and the American theatreHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+39309402753246352ocn002331997book19760.37Shepard, SamAngel City & other plays6153ocn008785434book19820.33Shepard, SamMotel chroniclesBiography AnecdotesAnecdotes"Motel Chronicles reveals the fast-moving and sometimes surprising world of the man behind the plays that have made Sam Shepard a live legend in the theater.
