"Winner of three Obie Awards, a New York Drama Critics Award, and the Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet is considered one of the most prolific and powerful voices in contemporary American theatre. Weasels and Wisemen is the first major study of Mamet's work to investigate the moral vision and cultural poetics upon which this playwright's vision is founded. Tracing the development of Mamet's canon over a period of 20 years, Leslie Kane examines the subtle link between the moral vision and ethical behavior that sets apart Mamet's theatre and film. In addition, Kane uniquely highlights the significance of Jewish values and cultural experience that have been overlooked in Mamet's canon."--BOOK JACKET
Gender and genre : essays on David Mamet ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Critical and popular debate about Mamet's work often centers on whether we should read his misogynist, unloving characters as reflecting his own misogyny or should recognize a Mametian irony in his memorable depictions. Irony is intimately related to issues of genre and to audience expectations. In turn, Mamet's celebrity colors responses to his work. The essays in this collection approach these controversial topics of gender and genre with verve, ranging from those which cast Mamet as a macho misogynist to those which understand his work as deeply ironic and even feminist. Topics include plays from the early Sexual Perversity in Chicago to the recent Jolly, two films, House of Games and Homicide, and Mamet's first novel, The Village
