Approaching the millennium : essays on Angels in America ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tony Kushner's epic play Angels in America has been one of the most successful theatrical phenomena of recent years, playing to full houses in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Frankfurt and touring North America and Asia. In Approaching the Millennium: Essays on Angels in America, prominent critics and theorists analyze diverse aspects of the play, exploring such themes as its treatment of American history and politics, its implication in apocalyptic writing, its thematizing of questions of identity (racial, religious, gender, and sexual), and the contexts of its performance and reception."--BOOK JACKET
Considering Maus : approaches to Art Spiegelman's "Survivor's tale" of the Holocaust ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1992, Art Spiegelman's two-volume illustrated novel Maus: A Survivor's Tale was awarded a special-category Pulitzer Prize. In it, Spiegelman tells the gripping story of his father's experiences in the Holocaust. The book portrays the trials Spiegelman's father endured as a Jewish refugee in the ghettos and concentration camps of Poland during World War II, his difficulties assimilating to American life following his immigration to New York, and the author's own troubled sense of self as he grapples with his father's history." "Ten scholars explore many aspects of the pivotal work, including Spiegelman's use of animal characters, the influence of other "comix" artists, the role of the mother and its relation to gender issues, the use of repeating images such as smoke and blood, Maus's place among Holocaust testimonials, its appropriation of cinematic technique, its use of language and styles of dialect, and the implications of the work's critical and commercial success."--Jacket

Create. This dissertation argues that monologue transforms the stage space in a play into "narrative space." Because of the monologue's ability to maneuver time and place, the process of telling has the power to subsume onstage activity and to "become" dramatic action. The focus of a performance, then, is not merely the narrative being relayed, but the act of monologue-speaking as well
